    Hello, that's poor not sending out your report, as for sending in further information as you have had your assessment and report sent to DWP I wonder if the extra information will have any impact on your award.

    I had new info on the day of my assessment, the assessor made notes of it and said he will add it in report and for me to  send it in, i know its with decision maker now and they have said they will wait for the new info before making a decision.

    Thanks @Chloe_Scope i have just spoke to them they said my report should be with me by Wednesday! I told him how anxious and ill the waiting is, after it was said to be sent on 14th which is wasnt, all he said was its 24 pages long with a lot of info on it and not to worry, im taking that with pinch of salt he was probably just being nice, the wait continues, any time for this process is stressful but a month till xmas is really getting me down worrying over my kids xmas presents, keeping my fingers crossed too x

    hi every one I’m new to this, just been stressing over my pip claim, had f2f 22nd Oct , then got a text message on 1st and Another on 5th of November to say they’ve received my written report , just wondering how long it takes from then to make a Decision? (Northern Ireland)

    HI and welcome,

    There's no timescales for decision's, where ever you live. Backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. It can be anything from 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer.

    oh I see , I just panic but as you say there are back logs , does your claim always go on how many points you get 
  • poppy123456

    Yes, you need to score points for an award and you need at least 8 points for standard award and at least 12 for Enhanced. There's 2 part to PIP, daily living and mobility and the points are added up separately for each part. If you don't score the points you won't be awarded PIP.

    Thanks for the advice , I Done research and took the pip test online and it was scoring me enhanced rate and standard for mobility though I read  it might be different when they look at my claim and do points

    Unless you understand the PIP descriptors and what they mean, the PIP self test isn't reliable. It's very easy to score yourself points, when it may not be possible to score as many as you think.

    Another sleepless nite! Still waiting for my report to arrive, they have confirmed they have now recieved my further information, and said my report was sent, my anxiety and mood since waiting is getting me down especially with lack of sleep! Hopefully the wait will be over soon!

    Sorry to hear this @M_Eandme! A lack of sleep really can affect us in so many ways. I hope you are feeling okay today and that you don't have to wait much longer!

    I can completely see why you'd be frustrated @M_Eandme! You are entitled to know what has been said. I really hope it comes soon!
