Hello

I supported my friend with his PIP Assessment. It took three hours. Is this normal? When will they receive an update?

Thanks

    Assessment length varies. A decision is typically made anywhere from 2 to 12 weeks.

    Hi,
    how are you?
    it is normal,(for me) for the form to take a while to fill out. The waiting time can range between a few weeks to a few months before an answer is received. PIP may also require an assessment, as this is helps in making decisions, but it is not always the case. 
    I hopes this helps

    Sounds like they have already had their assessment.

    Yes, the assessment was three hours. Which was long but the person covered a lot and was really good.

    I'm glad the assessment wasn't too bad for either of you @bpdhelp :) Fingers crossed it's not too long until your friend hears back! Please do keep us updated if you can.
