PIP assessment report received

DingobellDingobell Member Posts: 1 Listener

my wife is currently in the process of making a PIP claim. She has had her assessment and we requested the report ahead of the decision in case we need to appeal .

She has scored 10 points in both sections and in the main the report is relatively fair though there are inconsistencies .

My wife scored 0 regarding making complex financial decisions , yet the assessor clearly stated early on in the report that it was I who did all the budgeting etc and my wife was incapable .

My questions are do I wait for a decision and then bring this to their attention or do I flag this up with them now?

Secondly, will the case manager go with the points as per the report or will they come to their own conclusions , perhaps even spotting the inconsistency themselves?

    The mostly go with the report, it's rare to go against it, although it does happen. You can DWP to ask to speak to a case manager or ask for a call back. Once you speak to them you can point this out, whether or not it will help, i don't know.

    If the decision goes with the report your wife will have 1 month to request the MR.
