edited January 2020 in PIP, DLA and AA
I have been on dla for over 10 years and i was awarded it for an indefinte period. I have since been for my assesment to move over to pip. I went on the 18th November for my assesment and i asked for a copy of the report which i have since recieved. I phoned last week to see if a decision had been made as i received a letter on the 2nd December saying they had all the information they needed. Last week i was told my application was being audited and this week i've been told its gone up to the gurus because they need further medical evidence from my gp. I have no idea what this means for me. Any help would be grately appreciated

    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    Sometimes reports are chosen for audit, it's nothing worry about other than they are checking the HCP did their job correctly. Further evidence most likely means they are questioning something in the report that needs to be verified. Seems like they were a little ahead of theirself when they sent the "they have all the information letter out" even though those letters really don't mean anything because it could still take 2-8 weeks after you receive that letter.

    I'm very surprised you received a copy of the report when they've ask for more evidence from your GP. Unfortunately, all you can do is wait. Your DLA will continue until a decision's been made on the PIP. Once that decision's been made, if you're not happy you'll have 1 month to request the Mandatory Reconsideration.
