Hi to all

I had a letter today from Pip saying they have enough information to make a decision on weather I will be awarded Pip why didn't they just send me the decision today instead of silly letter.

    Hello, what would sooner have an update of the progress of your claim or nothing at all for a further four weeks, have you requested a copy of your assessment report ? Which on receiving it you can work out what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the official award letter notification letter.

    the assessor sends the report to the DWP decision maker who then usually agrees with the report, but it can take 6-8 weeks for the DM to do that depending on how busy they are.
    good luck
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.

    Hi Chloe_Scope'

    I hope I won't be waiting much longer either.
