PIP Online form. Should I add additional info at the end? I can't edit questions I've filled in

Hi all. 

I made a claim for PIP and opted for the online form as they said I could add and save progress and go back to it.

I've started to fill it in and the questions with areas to add more info work, you can save, edit and exit, but the first section about what conditions you have doesn't let me edit it, I'd put in conditions and some medication but couldn't remember the dosage mg so I saved it but can't edit it now. 

Should I cover everything again in the additional information at the end to be sure? Or am I missing something...

    Sounds like a practical solution to me.

    Hello there @northeastlady :)

    Just a quick line to see how you're getting on with your PIP application? Was the advice helpful? And have you managed to get everything filled in? 

    Anything you're still unsure about, please do get in touch. And we'll see if somebody on the community can help you out.

    Hi all, sorry for such a delay. Had a block of bad days and needed some downtime. So I submitted my pip form, UC also sent me the UC50 form for capability so I've completed that too. I added a personal statement and my partner wrote something too. I've sent the forms off to both along with screenshots and images from my online medical record access showing prescriptions and events such as referrals and treatments etc. Not sure how long the current wait is in the northeast, Middlesbrough area, for the UC capability or PIP applications to reach an assessment appointment stage etc but we shall see.

    Just to add, you can go back in to each section and edit it just doesn't look like you can until you save each section again.

    Just a short distance if you needed a face to face appointment then...

    PIP claimants do not meet the Decision Maker (who is not the health assessor).
