    You can now phone them and ask for a copy of the assessment report which will give you an idea of the award, the DWP DM usually (not always) goes with the report.

    They can't tell you that as its not an award until a decision maker has looked at it and decided, but by requesting a copy of the assessment it will hopefully put your mind at rest.

    Take a deep breath, you don't know what the outcome will be until you either get a copy of the assessment which would arrive 4/5 days after you ask for it, or until the DWP make a decision which can take upto 8 weeks.

    Hi again I understand how losing PIP can have a huge affect but try not to focus all your life around this decision . You hage the option to appeal the decision if it gets stopped 

    It is a great financial help but it wont change your life

    You need to get some help for your depression that is what will help you more 

    Have you got any support or can you see your gp or contact mind or samaritans

    I think you need to get the number for the crisis team in your area and use it if you experience any thoughts of harm. 

    If your area has a talking therapies service or similar service you may want to self refer for your depression. 

    There will be dots or ticks, the assessor needs to recommend their points for each activity.
