PIP success

Good morning all. Some good news. I woke today and checked my bank account and can see I have received a PIP payment! £763.10 so they have paid me 13 weeks on standard rate. My initial report looked favourable with 8 points and even though it seemed positive I could not relax. I hope this gives people some hope whilst waiting for their letter. This was a first claim of any benefit and I continue to work full time, struggling but with support from my employer. A big thank you to @poppy123456 who explained things clearly to me via a pm. I didn't feel the comments on my report were that accurate but I've been awarded standard which I think is fair. In total from f2f my claim took 5 weeks 3 days.

    Fantastic news! Always nice to hear positive stories and just proves that these success stories are out there but we don't often hear about them. Glad i could help. :)
