Hi I recently filled in pip form for my brother he had let it run out as he had become a recluse and wasn't accepting any help well after couple years he is now accepting help so we are slowly getting there pip had run out by 6 months I filled forms in really thoroughly and also included a very detailed letter stating what his problems were and why the form wasn't renewed also would been easier as was a light touch review I filled these in on June 9th I am my brother's appointed person I got a phone call last week lady said I'm from pipp assesment can I ask you some questions re your brother I said yes sure she asked me 4 questions I answered after 8 minutes she said ok thankyou for that that's all I need that's his assesment done you will hear few weeks I was just little shocked on only 8 minutes to do the assesment normally there sometimes hour long I don't know if it's good thing or not

    Sometimes they do ring to just as a few questions to see if a paper based assessment can be completed. Once the report is returned to DCWP a decision can take 2-12 weeks.
    What i don't understand is this part.

    No one has completed a light touch review yet because no one has reached that stage with their award. This rule didn't come out until quite a few years after PIP was introduced in April 2013. I'm sure you meant a review, (which is the same process as a new claim but just a shorter form), rather than a light touch one.
    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.
