Hi everyone. I'm new to both PIP and this forum. Having never claiming any kind of benefit in 43 years of working, this will be my first port of call for the many questions I have. Looking forward to getting to know other members

    Hello and welcome @huddo864 to the Scope online community and it's great to have you on board.

    If you'd like to, take a look around the forum and a good place to start is our categories page where you can browse our different topics. You can also get to know other members, chat, and play games in the Coffee Lounge as well.

    You will see that there are lots of discussions around PIP - is there anything in particular you wanted to discuss?  The PIP process can be daunting and overwhelming to many of us. You will find that many of our online community members have invaluable first hand experience of the PIP process which they will be happy to share with you and to give supportive input should you find that helpful.   

    I hope you find the community a supportive and welcoming place to spend time.

    If you need a hand with anything please do let us know, and enjoy exploring the forum.
