Pip Quick question

cupcake88cupcake88 Member Posts: 873 Pioneering
Hiya Every one if I requested my report on Friday just gone  is there a good chance ill receive it on Monday tomorrow  or are they slow to post out things am I most likely to receive my decision before my report ha . Also I know this sounds stupid but my partner is on late shifts next week I usually get my post like lunch time I,m going to just open it and then go threw it my self but I need some support to open it so Ill come on here while I open the letter I know it sounds daft but I,m really scared to find out what the outcome could be as this money would be life changing for me and give me back my independence .

I appreciate every one is different but I cant help but read other peoples post who have similar disabilities to my self and think well if they go 0 points I,m going to get that too I cant help but think Negative bout it 

I.m guessing Ill have to work out roughly my own points from what they have said.

    HI,

    Some receive it within a couple of days and others wait longer. It will arrive when it arrives really and no one can predict that.

    As i advised in a previous thread to you, you will see the activities/descriptors with a big dot next to them. Use the PIP self test to transfer the dots from the report into the test and it will add it all up for you.

    Here's a sample of a PA4 report (PIP assessment report) have a look and this is what yours will look like. As you can see half way down the report there's "health prefessionals opinion" with the activities/;descriptors and this is what you need to look at and use the PIP self test with the dots. https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/259102/response/640058/attach/3/PA4.pdf?cookie_passthrough=1

    So it comes with all those pages I thought it only be one page well Ill keep a look out for a thick letter 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes it will be like that one in the link. There will be lots of writing, which will be about you. At the bottom of the descriptors there will be their justification for the descriptor they chose.

    I know you're worried and anxious but there's really nothing more you can do at this stage.

    Yup, it's like a book. There's far too much information to have just 1 page.
