Hi, guys, I had my phone call for filling my pip form in, it's long-form to fill in ? I am to put in my specialist that deals with me being paralysed down the right side,  and my eye specialist, they also said  that I can put more in but it won't make a difference, because it's how disabilities affect your daily life. And mobility which I don't have any as I can't walk, so it's just sitting back and waiting now to see if need an assessment, thank you for all your help in putting me in the right places, to get help ??

    That's great 

    I would expect an assessment not many people get just a paper based but it does happen 

    From reading other posts you might be waiting a while some people applied in Dec still waiting for assessment. 

    Let us know your progress
