Positive pip experience

Hi, I just wanted to give a positive message about my recent experience with the pip process. I applied first time on 15th September, had my telephone assessment on 9th December and received payment in the bank on 23rd December. My telephone assessor was kind, understanding and gave me plenty of time. I didn’t request the assessment report but from reading my award letter that came a few days later he went with what I said. All of my claim was anecdotal but they did contact my gp. I was terribly anxious waiting for all of this and during my telephone call but not all experiences are bad so just wanted to give a bit of hope to anyone anxious and waiting. This forum is so helpful and just wanted to say thank you to you guys for giving up your time and your invaluable help & info.
