Pip assessor blatantly lied and made things up

lippy Member Posts: 4 Listener
Just received my decision 0 points. The pip assessor said I have no mental health team involvement at all. Yet I took with me and have letters from my physchiatrist, mental health nurse. Appt letters going back 6 months and future appts..Pip assessor said I'm not on any medication! Yet I took it all with me and have copies of my prescription. I'm on 7 different meds! She said she examined me! She did not. She said I take my daughter to school, cook for her..ect yet I gave her a letter from social care stating shes temp living with her father as I xant see to my basic needs let alone hers! She said I was calm..they nearly had to get paramedics to me! .. I have  just posted my mandatory reconsideration and enclosed all letters. How can they ignore evidence and tell such blatant lies. My question is..how long does MR normally take ?

    Hi @lippy - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read about your PIP decision. Unfortunately we often hear about people's bad experiences with 'inaccurate' reporting in this forum.
    I'm sorry I can't answer your query, as I looked online for an answer to this recently, & couldn't find one. With the Coronavirus pandemic, many things are taking longer, so expect a wait to hear about your MR. You could try ringing the DWP later, but they mainly give a 'guideline' as to how long you might have to wait. Please let us know how you get on.
