I'm wanting advice on my pip claim. They said that my claim has been sent to audit. Is this a bad sign?

    Hi and welcome 

    Ig is nothing to worry about 

    Claims are randomly selected for audit if is to check their own processes and not an audit on you 

    Only downside is it may  take longer to get it all completed

    Thankyou. My claim started on the 5th Jan and my telephone assessment was done a month ago, how long do you think this would take to make a decision?

    The normal guideline is 8 weeks for a decision but that is just a guide 

    Some cats quicker some are longer , basically how long is a piece of string 

    De8ends in backlogs and workload in your area and if the decision maker

    Hi @flow

    Just to advise, I've moved this post to our PIP, DLA and AA category and slightly amended the title, to help others in the future who may have the same question.

    I hope @janer1967 's advice has helped quell some of your worry and please let us know how you get on.  Good luck!
