Dwp not received pip

clarefar Member Posts: 12 Listener
HI I called to ask for a copy of my assessment and the man who was nice said they havent received my assessment report yet ( its been a week ) and then wanted to check all my details incase pip call me. So now in a huge flap to why they haven't had my report back and why would pip call me ? Wasn't the 2 hour assessment enough. Any one have any idea it takes for dwp to get my report.

    Hi and welcome 

    Sometimes the reports go to audit first and can delay them being sent to dwp . The audit is for them to check on the report quality and randomly selected it is not a check on you 

    Other reason could be delay from assessor they may have backlog or have been taken off sick or on leave 

    They will only be checking your details are correct there is no reason to worry if doesn't mean they will call
