    Hi @Annjan88 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. No-one knows for certain what's happening as it's early days. It's possible PIP assessments may be paper-based, or done by phone. Hopefully we'll all know a bit more soon about this. I'm pleased you've joined; stay in touch, & as soon as we know more you'll see it here.
    Meanwhile, please do talk here any time. :)

    HI and welcome,

    Face to face assessments have all been suspended for at least 3 months. The plan is for either paper based or telephone assessment. Link confirms this. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/face-to-face-health-assessments-for-benefits-suspended-amid-coronavirus-outbreak

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
