Does anyone know if pip paper assessment is more likely to be awarded at least something as i have been through so many forums . And i can't find one post about paper assessment being rejected

    First time application they done paper assessment and spoke to cpn. No f2f. I just can't find any negative posts about decisions from paper assessment

    Hi @jammydodger734, a paper based assessment is done when they believe they don't require anymore information to make a decision. Very best of luck!

    Thanks for reply Chloe . I rang few days ago and man said to me how sent report out because I asked for it but it could possibly go back to assessor as there's a note somewhere saying further info needed from gp. My.cpn has already spoke to them hence why dwprecieved report from assessor .

    As advised, even though they spoke to your cpn there could be something in the report that needs verifying, if this happens it could be returned to the health assessment providers.
