Mine is supposed to reach them by the 14th July, todays the 10th as still waiting on letter from GP as to date and diagnoses proof which I now realise its probably of no hep at all anyways.  Will tomorrow be to late to post it?

    Contact DWP and ask if you can have an extension on you application sending in, I think you can have a 2 week extension.

    You need to give at least 10 days for them to receive it and for it to be added to the computer. As wilko has advised, they will give you an extra 14 days to return it just ring DWP PIP.

    I sent mine back next day by special delivery - for the cost it was worth it - they got it at 5am.

    next day signed for delivery doesn't arrive with DWP any quicker than normal free posting. All it means is that it's been signed for by someone from Royal Mail and it could be anywhere. It's not classed as arriving until it's been added to the computer.

    My advice, save your money and just get proof of posting. So many people have sent post to DWP through next day delivery and it's still ended up getting lost... so much for the next day delivery.
