Pip assessor lied

cjdcjd Member Posts: 9 Listener
So I had my assesment in January I wasnt comfortable with the women and I was also unwell with an abscess in my mouth so I couldnt really open my jaw much to talk anyway
I had my report back i was awarded the same amount as last time which is good but the women had put that i dont prepare food and do my washing I certainly do I have always done it all but shes obviously gone off on what she saw because I was I'll my mum came over on her day off unloaded my washing and took food out of my oven for me while I was speaking to the women. 
Do I report this or just leave it? I'm a mum so obviously I'm now worrying if shes made me look bad. I'm an amazing mum just to add

    @cjd, I would just let the matter rest you got your award that you expected and accept it as fair and justified so trying to get a possible mistake, misunderstanding from the assessor amended or reported to me is a stressful experience you need not put yourself through. Stay safe during this virus crises

    Hi,

    I honestly don’t think there’s anything wrong here and I really wouldn’t worry too much about it. No one is saying you’re not a good mum. Lots of people need some help and support with daily living activities but it doesn’t mean they are a bad mum.

    Im a single mum and have been since my children were very small. They are grown up now and have lives of their own. I’ve had a disability since they were small but it definitely didn’t mean I was a bad mum.

    Hope this helps

    I would agree that if you are happy with the award just forget it and move on 
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Thank you for your reply, I'll just leave it as I got the award I had last time.
    I'm a worrier when it comes to anything even the little things so just wanted to double check thank you for putting my mind at ease

    You’re welcome. Preparing a meal is one of the activities of the PIP descriptors but it doesn’t mean you’re not a good mum. Glad I helped!
