So still waiting pip desicion phoned them this morning lovely woman on phone told me they have referred back to assesers regarding their scores on a couple of questions which contradicts what i sent in so she said thats a good thing because dwp are looking into it in depth and not just accepting what assesor has said for example i said i USED to like to crochet but cant do it now because of pain an grip in my hands assesor said i like to crochet therefor i can basically do everything for myself so soon as i read that on my assesment report i phoned pip and put record straight so hopefully not much longer and a desicion in my favour but its good to know they dont just take assesor word for it especially when assesment done over phone good luck to anyone else waiting x

    My only advice on PIP is add the scores up they give you yourself mine was showing a score of 11 points but I could see that couldn’t be right as I had scored 2 x 4 & a 3 plus 2 x 2 which is 15 points spoke to PIP they were really good they said your score is generated by a app they have on the system so it couldn’t be wrong, but it was I definitely added 15 points they had paid me the lower rate for 2 years but in theory I should’ve been on the higher rate they back dated it straight away they were very good just double check your points
