Decision regarding pip assessment

Johnsully7Johnsully7 Member Posts: 12 Listener
Hi 
Had a pip assessment  31 may 2019.
Told by assesser that a decision will be made within 4 weeks. Received a letter from dwp frIday 14 June 2019.saying that they have all the information required for your pip assessment and you will be notified regards to there decision . Told by friend  that if you going knocked off pip they do it withings 2 weeks. And that the longer you don't hear the better the chance they you've been awarded pip.

    Hi

    The HCP should not have told you when a decision will be made, that is down to the DWP. Decision times vary from area to area and the length of time is no indication.
    Have you asked for a copy of the assessment report ?

    Is that not normal? My assessor told me if hear back within 6 weeks. I heard back 8 days later I think though.

    Most assessors will tell you 6 weeks but they really have no idea how long backlogs are in any area.
