PIP waiting times & appointee

tanya2595 Member Posts: 62 Courageous
Hey all me again! So it’s now been 22 weeks since applying for PIP. Still not had a assessment or had a date for assessment. My partner phoned atos up last week and they said it should be any day now it’s picked up as I have been waiting for ages they also said twice to him I may not have to have a telephone assessment. Is this something they say to everyone? My partner is my appointee and I was just wondering will it be him talking on the telephone assessment if I do have one? I know I will have to be there but I can’t get past the anxiety to speak on the phone to even my doctors never mind PIP.
