I’m on page, 18. That’s writing on the back and front. I feel like I’m rambling on. Dwp will look at this and sigh. 

I feel like I’m writing pointless stuff. It’s worrying me ?

    When writing anything like this the key is to keep it brief and to the point, the DWP don't have time to read a small novel.

    What you need to get across is where (assuming its PIP) you didn't score points and why you think you should have, giving some real life examples of when you tried to do X what happened when you tried.

    They should have given more time on the phone then instead of interrupting me and not being able to get my point across.

    That’s what’s making it long. Is the real life examples. Got told to do 2 per descriptor. So I am. Just it’s so long. Nothing I can do about that.

    Yes 2 per descriptor that applies but you should aim for one A4 side per descriptor. Less is often more.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Also seeing on another thread people are telling this person to send it recorded delivery? Do I do that? I’m sure someone said yesterday not to bother. 

    Or do I just need a proof of sending? Thanks

    Proof of postage is all you need and thats free, recorded delivery is a waste of money when it come to the DWP.

    There isn't a necessity to send it recorded delivery, and I'm aware that quite a few people on the community will say you shouldn't bother, however of course it's up to you. Getting proof of sending is a good idea :)
