Phoning pip

Hi everyone
I was just wondering if it goes against you if on an o.k day mentally you call pip and request the report? I have been waiting 8 weeks since they received the report and still nothing, i have had someone call and they have said they have a big backlog.
Iv read on here that you can request the report which gives you an idea if you will receive anything.

    Ringing to request a copy of the assessment report is possible if you live in the UK and asking for this won't go against you.

    They will only send a copy to you if they've received both copies back from the health assessment providers.

    Once you receive it look for the dots and compare them against the PIP descriptors online, this will tell you how many points may have been recommended. You'll still need to wait for the decision but it will give you some idea because they mostly go with the report.
