I got my report and it says no need for review, unlikely to change. Does this mean I got my award?

    Hi there 

    Was this a review or change in circumstances? 

    The assessment report is only a recommendation,  it goes to a decision maker to make a decision.and they will then inform you by post of the outcome 

    So currently no decision has been made

    Hi @lisabrazil80 - if you look towards the end of the assessor's report, there should be black dots, or ticks against each of the activities or descriptors. Check here to see what points may be recommended: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf    You will need 8 points or more to receive the standard component, or 12 or more points to receive the enhanced rate for either/both components. The assesspr's report is a recommendation, & the DWP decision maker usually, but not always, goes with this. You will therefore have to wait until you receive the decision maker's letter to be sure.

    Hi @lisabrazil80 - sorry, I've just noticed your reply. For each activity, there will be a black dot or tick alongside one of the comments. So, for example, if you click on this link: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf  looking at the first activity, 'Preparing food,' if there's a dot or tick against 1b. that means 2 points. Does that help? If there is more than one dot or tick for an activity, only one is used, & that would be the higher number of the two.

    1. Preparing food                                                                                                                      Points
    a. Can prepare and cook a simple meal unaided.                                                                           0
    b. Needs to use an aid or appliance to be able to either prepare or cook a simple meal.               2
    c. Cannot cook a simple meal using a conventional cooker but is able to do so using a microwave. 2
    d. Needs prompting to be able to either prepare or cook a simple meal.                                         2
    e. Needs supervision or assistance to either prepare or cook a simple meal.                                   4 
    f. Cannot prepare and cook food.                                                                                                  8
