    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I would ring the helpline and ask so they know to expect it. Then send it off making sure you put your national insurance number on 

    However pip isnt about a diagnosis so unless the report gives details of how your daily living is affected it may not be relevant

    Hi thanks for your reply. It says about the difficulties I have with things like reading and writing, and short term processing memory making it difficult to remember things

    Dyslexia is going to impact reading and budgeting. If these extra points are likely to be crucial then by all means send it in but don’t have any illusions shout it being a magic bullet that will significantly shift your final award. That is rarely the case. 

    In terms of sending it in you just send it to the same address you sent the PIP2 to. Put a covering letter in and ensure you include your name, address and either DoB or NINO. There’s no need to call anyone to let them know it’s coming. Most of the call centres are outsourced at present and have limited access to DWP systems to record anything. They aren’t allowed to tell you if they’re outsourced or not. They will all answer as “DWP”. 

    The other reasons it’s pointless ringing are because if your PIP 2 hasn’t registered yet there would be no file to link a note to, and, calling up in advance will make no difference whatsoever in terms of persuading them to wait until your report arrives in order to make a decision. They’ve no obligation to wait for evidence. There have been several threads on this very point recently. The call centre operatives, not working for DWP, will blithely tell anyone who will listen that of course DWP will delay. No they won’t and the fact anyone says they would does not obligate them to either. 

    Their only obligation is to make a timely decision. If your report arrives before a decision has been made then it will be taken into account. If it arrives after then it will trigger a mandatory reconsideration.
