PIP Assessment

I have Copd , bronchiectasis , Obstructive sleep apnoea and a few more health problems, but the good news is after sending my DLA / PIP form off, from start to finish it took 4 months, I received my notification this morning for both enhanced  components of PIP it seems a long time to have you hanging on this long, but  to anyone in this position I wish you luck.

Think it's important that successes are posted - like yours mine went through "on-the-nod" so sometimes they system does work - in fact in around a third of applications it works (first time).

Pleased for you - well done!

Congratulations , as I understand it that is a quick result for these type of claims. You'll get it back dated so enjoy the extra towards your disability costs of living.

well done my first claim for dla took 13 months and I was turned down I then put in a claim for pip it took 3 months and I was awarded low rate.

They are awarding people for 3 years and doing the re- assessment after 2 years the system doesn't work and never has they are still wasting public funds on these private firms doing the assessment's our lungs will never get better

its just a total waste of money and more stress for us the money that is wasted on this could go to the NHS

Well done lyndene and congratulations for getting what you deserve. Perhaps you should let all the people on this forum have a copy of your claim form (haha) you obviously filled your form in well. Did you do by yourself or did you have help from a disability group? Great news x
