I said I would advise people about my timeline when I first filled in my forms for PIP. I  first rang up in late January and sent off the forms in early February. Had a 2 hour interview on May 16th. I have not asked for the report as I was too anxious and depressed. I have spent the last couple of days in bed. Today my friend rang me for my bank details as they wanted to transfer money into my bank. They asked me to check it had gone in and there was money from Pip. Not a massive amount for the number of months I have waited, but too much for a monthly payment. I don't know what I have been awarded, but I have been awarded something.  I just thought I would give hope to others who are anxious or worried. I thought I wouldn't get anything and had resigned myself to that fact. I will further update you all when I receive the letter.
