PIP Reconsideration

DanthemanDantheman Member Posts: 3 Listener
I have been successul with my reconsideration,for PIP.
However,I had a phone call from PIP,informing me that I had to go for another face-to-face assessment.
Has anyone else had to do this.

    Face to face assessments were all suspended for 3 months.  That 3 months ends soon but I'd be very surprised if they were starting them again already instead of extending the suspension.

    If you've only just been awarded through mandatory reconsideration I reckon the call was a mistake anyway.

    Oh, I just thought - are you sure it was PIP that called, not ESA/UC instead?

    Yes,I can confirm that he was from PIP.
    He said that I would have to attend another face-to-face assesment,within the next 3 months.
    To discuss my recondideration.

    Hmm, that's very odd! 

    I can't remember seeing anyone else asked to do that but hopefully another member can offer more useful advice.

    They have awarded me the exact same amount,that I was already on.
    It was only awarded until September 2021,and not the normal length of time.
