    Hi @tanbang :) 

    It's important to remember that people are more likely to post on forums if they've had a negative experience, than if they've had a positive experience. Some people do unfortunately have negative experiences during their PIP assessment, but others don't experience these problems. The assessor should be respectful and polite.

    I have a extra copy of my form I sent so I know what I have written down. My telephone appointment is early 9.05 I just worry about what questions I will be asked and I want to be able to answer them the best I can

    That's good @tanbang :) It's hard to say what exact questions they'll ask. You can only do your best. If you don't understand something they've asked, or need some time to answer, make sure you ask them to repeat the question or explain that you need a moment. You could have someone sit with you while you're on the phone too, if that would make you feel any more relaxed?
