Pip assessment

My son had his f2f at home on Monday , they offered home visit never requested it , not moaning about that as he would have gone mad going to a assessment centre as would be very anxious, anyway the assessor arrived and was very nice , she could see my son was anxious and said she would chat to me and not my son , he went into his bedroom , she chatted about the form I completed and left , I was very shocked as I had read that all assessors chat to the claimant and don’t like anyone else talking , just wondered if anyone else had this experience, I’m pleasantly surprised if I’m honest , I know this don’t mean it will be a great outcome , or is it some kind of trick ? Bit confused

    Then your son was very lucky that the HCP was so understanding.

    Leave it about a week and ring DWP to request a copy of the report. This will give him some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the recommendations in that report but he'll still need to wait for a decision.

    Decision times vary depending on backlogs in your area.

    Hello @Merclondon and welcome to the community. I'm glad to hear your son had a positive assessment experience. 
    When you get the assessment report, if there's anything you're unsure of or want some help understanding it, please don't hesitate to ask.
