    Mostly lies n only 2 things ticked but i dont really understand it all.

    I just phoned pip n no decision has been made yet but it with DM already.He said this is why they dont like sending out copies of reports cause it causes distress n confusion.In my report he has ticked does not need help with dressing then underneath it says does not get dressed due to depression n spends weeks in sane clorhes n needs prompting so what he writtern does not go with what he ticked.Hopefully DM will have acess to much more info.

    What’s points have been recommended in the report? 
  • kes2611kes2611 Member Posts: 118 Connected
    I know DM will side with assesor report even though they have past claims to look at n docs letters so mite as well end it all as have notjing keft.Everybody on here says DM goes with report so whats the point.

    The DM will usually go with the report but it has to be stressed NOT always, all you can do now is wait for the final decision and then go for an MR if its not what you expected.

    The point is that the PIP decision isnt all your life is worth .

  • MarkN88MarkN88 Member Posts: 1,297 Pioneering
    Have you even added up what the assessor recommends? 
  • kes2611kes2611 Member Posts: 118 Connected
    Yes 4 for daily living n 4 for mobility but letter v confusing as underneath the boxes where he writes notes on each page it says needs prompting n other stuff so not sure.

    Perhaps when i filled out my claim form i shd have put no change cause nothing has changed i have just got worse but i wanted to explain things n it was v similsr to what i wrote last tine. I suffer with amxiety m panic m if i go out n start 2 panic i start shoutin n causeing a scence. I have slipped disc n walking is v hard m have to keep stoppin but cause i said i cld go shpppin but had to keep stoppin to rest my bck i scoted no points. I think it v unfair n pip is v hard to get for mental health issues.i scored no points for not needing any help on planning a journey cause it mite cause distress wich is not fair. I hope DM does not go with report n looks at all my evidence from last claim.

    I have no experience of a review. I am led to believe though that’s it not recommended to put “no change” so I think you have done the right thing explaining things. 

  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 6,628 Disability Gamechanger
    Putting “no change” would absolutely have been a huge mistake. Do not forget though that the decision has yet to be made. If you think there is more to be said there is nothing to stop you writing that straight to the DWP now.

    Gonna wait on decision letter n see how i feel then.I did write 3 page letter when sent back claim form so am hopeing DM looks at docs letters n does not go just by report.
