PIP case has been referred to the Department’s Health Assessment Advisor
I placed my PIP claim on October 2019.
On 10.03.2020 I received PIP payment sum of £595.40
On 13.03.2020 I received letter from HMRC where stated that I awarded PIP and HMRC increased Tax Credit payment.
But not received any PIP decision letter from DfC. Today contacted DfC by email and asked about PIP Decision letter and asked for PIP Assessment Report.
"I can advise that a final decision has not yet been made on your PIP claim. The payment you received was issued in error from the PIP Centre as your case had been selected for an internal check before final decision was made.
I apologise for the confusion caused by the letters you have received stating we have all the information we need to make a decision, these are system generated letters issued in the aim of keeping the customer up to date with the current progress of their claim. Your case has been referred to the Department’s Health Assessment Advisor (HAA) for additional advice. Once advice has been received the PIP Centre case manager will be able to make a decision on your PIP claim and notify you of this.
I apologise for the delay in your claim.
In your email you have requested a copy of the PIP assessment report completed by Capita. I have issued this today in the post. Please be advised that the descriptors chosen within the report are subject to change following advice from the HAA or Capita."
Anyone can explain this situation.
I believe DfC awarded me with PIP, but last minute something changed.
