Beginning to fill in the PIP2 form- but finding hand writing extremely difficult.

Can I type my answers instead and attach them to the form ? - properly numbered of course.

    I can't see there being an issue with this! Accessibility is the key. 

    Hopefully, someone can correct me if I am wrong though. Good luck @Flowersmith1.

    Yes, you can type your answers. I did this last year when filling out the forms for myself and daughter. I typed notes first, as and when i thought of something to type. Once everything was completed i typed it all again.
    Make sure you include your name and NI number on everything you type. Also make sure you Include a couple of real world incidents of exactly what happened the last time you attempted each activity that applies to you. Adding detailed information such as where you were, what exactly happened, did anyone see it and what the consequences were. You should aim for at least half an A4 side of paper per descriptor that applies.
    You can ring to request an extra 2 weeks to return the form but make sure you send it with plenty of time for them to receive it back. Take it to your post office and ask for free proof of posting, which is all that's needed. No need to send it recorded delivery because this isn't proof they've received it.

    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.

    You are welcome @Flowersmith1. It is the very least you deserve. I hope someone can confirm with certainty too!

    Unfortunately, PIP isn't an area of my expertise. I just recognise that it could be deemed a reasonable adjustment under the Equality Act 2010  :)
