Just got a call to say my f2f at home tomorrow is now cancelled said they will either do a paper based decision if enough information or a telephone appointment  if they need more. So I guess it's back to waiting again.

    Yes sadly it will mean a longer wit but hopefully not too long, my OH had a tele assessment last year and it lasted all od ten minutes and she got the same PIP ss before, plus she hadn't sent any evidence as she has non.
    Good luck

    @Firefly123 I had a phone assessment last year even b4 all this started, they just wanted to clarify a few points and I got a higher award than my previous one. So fingers crossed they have enough to review your case . Keep us updated

    That applies to all face to face assessments and appointments. Paper based and telephone assessments will be in process.

    I think I gave enough evidence to show why I have the problems doing certain things but will see. 

    I already had to do a MR as they said they didn't get my paperwork on time which was rubbish as I had proof of posting well before the due date..
    So does that mean I can ask for another one if I don't agree with the desision @poppy123456

    Yes you can because the MR was because they said they didn't receive the form on time.
