Hi All,
i had a PIP Telephone  Assessment today.  Oh my word not sure what the outcome is going to be but i have to say the lady was very nice and polite. it lasted 70 minutes.  They basically go over what is on the form - i think my trick question was when i told them i work and what i did - she instantly said "i bet you type fast" i said no i use a voice regnition software :) which i do.
The usual about medication, food prep, going out, shopping, getting dressed, moving around, hobbies.  Also asked about when you last went out - last drove. How i was using my phone - eg how do i sent a text and email - I said SIri did it :) which he does or i do stelus pen but i prefer the voice option.
Anyways glad its over been stressing.  Hmm just one more thing "how do u define anxious?"
Thanks,
N

    @naila_007, yes phone the DWP and request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can work out what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the award notification letter. If your not happy with the report and think you may want to lodge an MR you have now several weeks to gather information and evidence to further support your MR.
