Hi me again i filled out my pip review form and sent it back they have said i will need an assesment i have three pages written down for the assesment as to how my condition affects me i have a lot more written for the assesment than i did on the form will the form be used as evidence on making a desicion or will all the information i have written down now be able to be used? Hope that makes sense x

    Hi there 

    They will use your form and any evidence as well as the assessment report

    The assessment will be based around what you put on the form trying to get more info 

    Too late now but for future you should put as much detail on the form as you can and treat it as a new claim 

    In some cases they can then do a paper based assessment 

    Good luck let us know how you get on at least you have done the prep work

    No don't worry the assessment gives you the opportunity to expand on what you have put on the form but the questions are led by the assessor 

    As you have written stuff down cross them off as you have mentioned them then anything left add on at the end 

    The other option is to submit what you have written as additional evidence and send to dwp 

    As you don't have an assessment date yet I would try this but keep a copy fir yourself 

    When sending put covering letter and make sure your name and ni number is in every piece of paper
