    Hello @veronikalackova25 and welcome to the community :) 

    The ticks are probably what the assessor decided to answer for each of the questions they asked you in the assessment on the 23rd June.

    Does that make sense, or can we help a bit more?

    Hi @veronikalackova25 - have a look here: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/PIP descriptors.pdf    This will show you the assessor's recommendations if you check the ticks with the points in the pdf. You will still have to wait for your decision letter however.

    No, it doesn't mean that, if ther ticks/dots are all in box A then that's zero points. You need to have a look at the report to see where the ticks or dots are against the descriptor. There will be acitivities/descriptors and underneath will be A/B/C etc etc, so a dot/tick in descriptor A for that activitiy would be zero points recommended.
    You then need to compare where those dots are against the PIP descriptors to see what points are recommended. You can use this PIP self test and transfer where the dots are in the report and put them in this self test. At the end it will add up the possible points that are recommended. https://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/pip-test-form
    Remember, the report is not the decision, it's a recommendation.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.

    The assessment report isn't the decision, it's a recommendation. They mostly go with the report but it has been known for them to go against it. This is one of the reasons why requesting the report isn't always a good idea because it causes even more anxiety.
    All you can do is wait for the decision to be made. This can be anything up tp 12 weeks.

    Thanks for answering 🙂 the questions.... and also if I have ticks on all pages mean the activities and down below the wrote  justification for description choice 
    The claiment not report significant  funcitional problems with this activity in their questionnaire or at consultation and there was no evidence to suggest otherwise ?   Do if the asistor but me on all pages ticks why she wrote this that there are no evidence?

    It's sound for me that I'm not will be awarded for the pip because she put me marks on all my pages about my activity but on the justification she put that there are no evidence but I'm still waiting for the decision I'm in stress now I don't know what to think about this copy of my report as she put me some marks what I did is counted out the score and its come to me 13 for daily living and 14 for mobility I think I would not me awarded if  the wrote there no evidence  so why she put me the ticks there I'm not understanding this

    Unfortunately getting the report often causes greater anxiety than not having it. All you can do is wait for the decision.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    If it’s first time claim and you’re not transferring from DLA then payment should be in your bank 3-5 working days after it’s paid to you.
