I am worried about my PIP telephone assessment.  Has anyone got any advice or could share their experiences with me about their telephone assessment or avoiding the pitfalls and making mistakes please

    No one can tell you what questions they will ask because they will depend on how your conditions affect you. There's no trick questions, just questions to gather as much information as possible.

    If you kept a copy of the form that you sent then have a read of that to remind yourself of what you told them, part of the assessment is for you to verify what you wrote in the form as well as any other additional information they need.

    If you don't understand or didn't hear what they said then ask them to repeat it.

    Good luck.
