Hello again to everyone hope you are having a good sunny day ?. I received my pip review form and sent it off in time as I had an extension for two extra week's. I was just wondering how long it will take for them to get back to me offering telephone assessment which I'm not looking forward to.. But I know its gonna happen. I would be grateful for your help if anyone knows thank you.

    Hi Jack Unfortunately there are no set timescales all depends on the backlog and the area you are in and the availability of the assessors.

    Assessments f2f are still suspended so it will be a phone assessment

    HI,

    Most people are having phone assessments, paper based assessments are still rare. It's perfectly normal to feel anxious during times of reviews but please don't increase your meds without first speaking to your GP.

    Hopefully you're not waiting too long but try thinking of something else in the meantime although i know how difficult that is.

    Hi all once again well I don't know what to say but my heads a bit fuzzy so here goes. Had a phone call off dwp lady askin if i still need prompting to eat food. Which I do need as I'll forget to because of cognitive problems. Then asked my surgery address to which I was a bit lost on so had to ask wife for help. Then asked if I still  need help with journeys to which I said yes. She was very polite and said I wouldn't need an assessment at this time and said her goodbyes and that was it. My head is now a bit confused as I've heard it could be a test of some sort and I don't know what to do next. Anyone have any thoughts on this plse

    They could be doing a paper based assessment, which is rare but people certainly do have them. Nothing more you can do really but wait. If you put a mobile number down on the form once the report is back with DWP they will text you to tell you.

    If you live in the UK you can then ring DWP to request a copy of the report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    There's no timescales but hopefully you won't be waiting too long.
