Hey guys I applied for PIP on the 10/11/21 got my letter shortly after but couldn’t bring myself to do it and had to get another one by which point they had said that my case is already with an assessor and had to send the new one off ASAP. I had my phone assessment for 60mins on the 11/03/22 and now I’m left with pure anxiety that I have not done or said enough my anxiety is through the roof with the whole process has anybody else experienced similar please thank you xx

    Hello @LOwens and welcome to the community, thanks for reaching out. 

    I'm sure you're not alone in finding the PIP application process stressful, and I'm sorry to hear how you've been feeling. It's easier said than done, but try not to dwell on what's happened. At this stage there's nothing to do until you hear more from the DWP.

    Once you know the result of your application, we'll be here to support you, and guide you through your next steps, if you need to continue the process. The community is very knowledgeable on the subject, so please do ask if you have any questions.

    If there's anything you feel we can help with let us know, and try to focus on any distractions or things you enjoy for now.
