PIP Conversation

Just making conversation, wonder when F2F will go back to normal. I don’t think till another 8-10 months as a guess, but I guess it’s asking how long is a piece of string lol! hope you all got your PIP ententes assuming it was going to run out. hope you all get what your entitled to.

    Fair point @samfits99, I can't see them doing F2F appointments for a while.

    the way things are going again i think it will be a very very long time before face to face assessments are reintroduced. our world wont be the same again for quite a while.

    Hello, I can’t see Face to face assessments resuming till next summer if then, with people’s awards being extended up to a year before another review, I applied a change in circumstances and my papers where entering the system and I received an nine extension on my pip award . So it will be interesting what happens, will I remain the same or get enhanced in both and a long award.

    The consensus is that telephone works far better for most people so that will be staying. Video is going to be trialled with about 500 people and you can most likely expect no face to face assessments until 2022.
