    Hi there Thanks for the update 

    Unfortunately you have wasted your money sending it recorded delivery as it is royal mail that sign for it at the mailing center and that doesn't mean it gets to pip 

    There are still long delays getting post scanned onto the system so I would give it about 4 weeks to chase if you haven't heard anything 

    All you need to do is get proof of postage which costs nothing

    The post office would say that not knowing how dwp post is handled 

    Anyway fingers crossed this one makes it

    I'm sorry to hear that you're still waiting @9tl4b. It seems as though this is making you feel really anxious, which is understandable. Are you receiving any support for your anxiety? Is your son a good source of support for you?

    A letter from your gp is only helpful if it describes your daily functionality against the descriptors which I doubt they will do 

    They can describes your diagnosis,  treatment meds etc buf that isn't often challenged 

    Your gp doesn't see you washing,  toilet, bathing,  cooking and so on which is what pip is about
