How long did your PIP decision take for a new claim?
Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have Autistic Spectrum Disorder and I finally applied for PIP in august this year (a little over 15 weeks ago now). This is the first time I've ever tried to claim any kind of disability benefits to help with the impact my autism has on my daily living. I had my face to face assessment today. I just wondered how much longer I should expect to be waiting now for an outcome to my claim? How long did it take for you to receive a decision after your assessment? If I am awarded, will they backdate payments to the date I applied? Thanks all. T x
