Change of circumstances

I put in for a change of circumstances with my pip on the 17/08/2019, I had a face to face assessment on the 5/11/2019. 16 weeks later I'm still waiting for a decision to be made. Called them today and they advised me it will take another 2-4wks. So in total I've waited over 6months for the whole thing to be sorted out, I think this is outrageous. I suffer with paranoid schizophrenia, panick attacks and anxiety. By the time they have looked into my claim it would have been 7months in total

    Welcome to the community @azzgsw and I'm sorry to hear the process is taking so long. Unfortunately, this is common and can be due to backlogs, etc. Have you asked for them to send you a copy of the report?

    It's entirely up to you - it is common for claimants to ask for a copy :)

    Hi @azzgsw and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear you have had a lengthy wait regarding your PIP and hope you don't have to wait too much longer.  Please let us know how you get on with this and if there is anything else we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:
