Hi all just want to say I had my telephone pip assessment last Wednesday it lasted a whole 7 minutes from beginning to end!!!!!!!!!
Which I must say was quite concerning 😟 but I woke up Thursday to a txt saying that they had received my written report and it could take 8 weeks for a decision then on the Friday i woke up to a txt saying I had been awarded pip have heard of some assessments taking well over an hr!!!!!! And people waiting the full 8 weeks for a decision just goes to show its just a lottery which thankfully I seen to have won but not recieved a payment yet so just have to wait and see..........

    Hello @Phill66 and thanks for sharing your experience, congratulations on being awarded PIP, and I'm glad it wasn't a long wait for you.

    • Recent discussions is where you'll find all the latest conversations our members are having
    • The categories page shows all the different topics for discussion
    • The virtual coffee lounge is a place to chat, get to know other members, and play games too

    I hope this community can act as a place of support for you, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything. Let us know how things go!
