Hi so I signed up for PIP and I had my assessment out of the blue, it lasted upto 6 minutes at the most and I was confused how quick it was, I didn’t know if it’s because I possibly failed or something but I just want to ask for your guys opinions

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    It sounds like you have had a paper based assessment which are rare but do happen 

    They do call out of tye blue as it isn't a full assessment they will j6st have had a few questions to clarify a few points 

    They will make a decision based on your form and any other evidence you sent 

    A decision can take anything up to 12 weeks

    Welcome to the community @jevo203972 :) As Janer1967 has said, fingers crossed it's nothing to worry about. It sometimes happens when they feel they have enough information from the form. 

    How are you feeling today, now that you've had some time to process it?
