Well, after almost 9 months since registering my claim for P.I.P, 8 months since sending the forms off - and 7 months since the face-to-face assessment, I can report that following yet another follow-up call on my claim, I was told today that my case is closed and that the report has now (finally) been forwarded to the DWP.
If you have followed my posts on this saga, you will know how frustrating this whole experience has been. I have called regularly for updates and been given the same range of 6 excuses each time. In January I met with my local MP who wrote to CAPITA, and as late as Tuesday this week, talking to Complaints who promised to get back to me (the didn't!!) I was still no wiser to where the claim was at.
I was told today that an electronic report was sent to DWP yesterday, with paper copy to follow, and that it 'should' take 4 weeks to get the decision. I'll believe that when I see it!!! Hopefully I won't have to wait another 9 months for them to do the job they're paid for. Yes or no, I just want a decision and can't believe it has taken this long (maybe longer if more than the 4 weeks)....
Stay tuned for the final result - if you can wait that is!
