Hi all, 
I've had a call today from pip they making decisions today but wanted to know the exact date illness started! Anyone know why this is? Feeling disheartened about the situation.

    Hi @gemzya80 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. The only thing I can think is that you have to have had your disability for 3 months prior to claiming PIP. If you've had it that long, then try not to worry. :)

    Thank you so much. They only had report on the 7th it's all gone super fast. The lady was really lovely but insisted on date it started. She then advised me I will receive a letter within 10 days.  A great welcome also thank you. ❣
