Hi everyone I have just returned my PIP REVIEW form and I recall that when I was on DLA and had to fill in a new form to transfer over to PIP about 2 years  ago I could call and ask for my report before the decision letter was sent out.
Would anyone know exactly what it is I need to ask for and roughly how long after sending my form back can I  request this. TIA

    The report will not be done until you have had an assessment. In most cases this will involve a telephone of face to face appointment. There are long delays for assessments at the moment so it may be several months before your have an assessment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Reviews are not as simple as that and they shouild be classed as a new claim by all claimants.

    As calcotti has correctly advised, most people have telephone or face to face assessments even for reviews.  So yes, you should expect either of those. When an appointment becomes available they will contact you.
