    Hi there 

    You can request a copy of your report after 7 days 

    It isn't the decision but will show you the recommended points and comments 

    The dm in most cases goes with the report

    Hello and welcome to the community @jules10 :) 

    Different people with the same diagnoses can be awarded different levels of PIP, as it's about how your conditions affects you rather than the diagnoses themselves. Were you able to fully explain and give evidence for how your conditions affect you during your assessment and form? 

    As Janer1967 has said, you can ask for a copy of your report after about a week. 

    Try not to worry too much about it now, as you'll have to wait and see what your result is. 

    Are you accessing any support for your mental health at the moment? 

    Just so you're aware, I've moved your post into our PIP category, and renamed it so that others can find it more easily.

    Yes, I believe that's normal @jules10. Once the assessor's report has been sent to the DWP, you can ask for a copy of your report as outlined above. This won't be a guarantee of the award you'll get, but decision makers do often go with the assessor's report.
