I have been reading the posts for a few weeks now and its great to see how friendly and helpful the forum members are thank you. I am currently supporting my partner on a DLA to PIP transfer, awaiting a decision  so fingers crossed.

    Hi @Harleyqueen - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I'm wondering if you asked the DWP for a copy of your partner's assessment report? This is something you can do about a week after the assessment, & can give an indication of the points that may be awarded. You still have to wait for a decision letter, but the DWP Decision Maker usually goes along with this. You probably know this if you have been reading the posts here for a while, but mentioning, 'just in case.'
    I hope all goes well, & please do say if we can help/advise with any thing.

    Hi Ami2301
    Thanks for the welcome, It has been a bit stressful but we knew the transfer from DLA to PIP was coming (not that it made it any easier ) but reading all the posts and advice has been helpful.

    Thanks again
