    Hi @jayne2110 - Welcome to the community , & thank you for joining. The 'they have all the info they need' letter is just a standard one sent out to every claimant. I hope you get a copy of your assessment report soon. You could try ringing again to make sure this has been posted. Delays of course may be due to the situation we're all in.
    Please let us know how you get on.  :)

    Hi the report came today no answer on weather I got it or not just the report the assessor wrote "recommends I get a face to face assessment in 18months and there was 9 points for standard living and 12 points for mobility 
    Do they take on all the assessor comments or do they decided what to take from assessment and do points themselves 
    I'm new to this and it's all very confusing.x

    Hi @jayne2110 - Pleased you got your assessment report. The DWP Decision maker usually goes along with this, so it looks like you'll get standard rate for daily living, & enhanced rate for mobility. I hope that's what you were expecting. Of course you'll still have to wait for the actual decision letter, but I hope you can relax a little for now.  :)

    @chiarieds thanks for your reply hopefully it comes and this is what I'm getting I'm still unsure about it as I've heard so many different things about pip

    Please don't worry; you hear some negative things about PIP on forums, but rarely hear about peoples good experiences as they don't have anything to complain about. It is rare for the Decision Maker to disagree with the assessor, honestly. :)

    Can I just ask do you automatically get a copy of the assessment report or do you have to ring and request that,many thanks in advance?

    Dynasty30 I was told to email them to request it to be sent once i got text that the pip had received it so I could go over it to check what had been put down.

    Hi all I applied for pip on the 17 feb received a form to fill in 10 days later sent it back received a text 2 March to say they received it. I phoned last week as I haven’t heard nothing since to be told it has gone to the assessor he said I would either get a phone call or a letter or maybe the assessor would hand it back not sure what that means but it’s taking such a long time for them to let me know what’s going on

    I’ve never contacted them other than to update,mines went in on 7th of February done the phone claim for the actual forms on the 14th of January was only notified too say they have received the claim,then out the blue I got a text to phone and arrange an assessment which takes place on the 11th May

    They must be right behind with all the claims hope you are successful and get it all back dated.

    I’m stressed out thinking about the assessment I’ve never applied for it before,and was quite debilitated a yr prior and I just thought I’m more or less housebound so I’m hoping they can see that.
    ive just come across better evidence but too late to send that in with my claim so they will base my decision on what they have which isn’t much,but will hold onto it incase I need a MR sad but I’m gearing up for that already

    Yes I’ve been scrolling the internet too,I also did the self assessment and purposely marked myself down and had still qualified but you just never know it could go either way
