I got denied PIP so made a mandatory reconsideration they received it on the 19th July and today I’ve had a phone call from the women who is in charge of my new decision she asked me if I had been in hospital or on holiday for more than 4 weeks and then asked if my bank details were the same and asked if I had any questions, she said she will contact me (letter) within 7-10 days with a new decision. I read somewhere that if they ring you it usually means you’ve been denied again? Is this right

    Not sure where you read that but it's not correct. It doesn't mean anything other than they rang. The questions you were asked would usually be asked when they owe you some money.

    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.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Good afternoon @MissCT8676
    I think poppy is correct.  That sounds like the standard questions they ask to work out how much money they owe you.  If you are successful you may very well get some money paid into your bank account before you receive a decsion letter from the DWP. Let us know how you get on.

    Jean56 said: I'm only 4 weeks away from state pension age as o may not get pip.
    That makes no difference. If you qualify you are entitled to receive PIP because your claim was made prior to reaching pension age and, if awarded, can then continue beyond pension age.

    Hi @Jean56 I couldn’t believe the things wrote on mine either! The amount of things wrote that I never even said! The assessor claimed I said I don’t eat and am under weight I can assure you I am not under weight and could hardly lie about that haha! Make I went on a site I’ll try and find the name and they send you a draft for a letter joe to explain and write down EVERYTHING! Get your daughter to write a letter too with the things she does to help you it’s such a stressful thing I’m going to hear this week I’ve been waiting since March (when I first applied)
