10 weeks since face to face assessment still no decision...
Hi i was wondering if anyone in northern ireland had a similar experience with claiming PIP. I claimed 3rd july 2019 f2f assessment was 15th aug 10 weeks ago. I had a letter telling me they had all info they needed and would be in touch with decision 7 weeks ago. Nothing. Then another letter saying the same thing 3 weeks ago. I have rung PIP and was advised they requested further evidence from my gp after receiving my assessment report back and it's with case manager. My assessment report only scored me 6 points on daily living and nothing on mobility although she stated I was very unsteady and had to hold on to the wall when walking and that she didnt ask me to perform the musculoskeletal part of the assessment as I wasnt in for state. I was really just curious if this seems positive that they were going to score me higher than the 6 points on assessors report as they contacted my gp after receiving the assessment report? It seems pointless to contact gp after receiving a report scoring me only 6 points as if they were going to go with that they wouldve just refused me if u know what I mean?
