Hi.. funny phone call from PIP after mandatory reconsideration
Hi, basically in January of this year I made a claim for pip, I had my assessment in July and literally couple of weeks later had letter through the post got 0 points for everything. It’s full of lies and not anything I had said and just judgements made by the person who took my call. I done the mandatory reconsideration in august a 4 page detailed letter explaining everything to the best of my ability. Long story short I received a phone call from the dwp last week about 5 days ago now. And got asked if I had been in jail, if I had been abroad and if I wanted all arrears to be paid in full in bits if I can manage my finances or not. Then she asked to speak to my sister who is my carer so she rang her and just asked her what meds I was taking and what support I was getting and that’s it. Just told her wait 5 days for decision.
Just doesn’t make no sense to me at all because if she was going to award wouldn’t she just say I will be awarding you but just looking into more of your info. It don’t make no sense to me at all. Has anyone else had a similar phone call? Did you get awarded after?
