Hi, my pip phone assessment was Monday I don't think it went to good the lady was very in your faces with the question. My care manager wrote her report and care plan for my daily living as a change and now I need carers 3 times a day. I felt like I had to justify myself it was not a good assessment. They say there to change but not as far as I can see .

    Hello @ashgizmo3169Q and welcome to our community.  I'm sorry you don't feel that the PIP assessment went well.  Try not to worry too much though as you never know, and there is always the option to ask for a mandatory reconsideration if the decision doesn't go as your way.

    You could also call PIP and ask for a copy of the assessment report (PA4) from next Monday which will give you some idea of the award recommended by the assessor.  

    I have my fingers crossed for you and please let us know how you get on.

    Hi and welcome 

    I know it's easy to say dont worry but it is part of the assessors job to question you and for you to justify your claim 

    Fingers crossed let us know what the report says
