PIP FORMS SENT

Well posted the dreaded PIP forms today fairly certain it won't get me anywhere but it was worth a try , have no idea how long it takes for them to receive and read them so don't know how long I can expect to wait for some sort of reply but wait I will and will update when I know anything or if anyone else knows how long I can expect to wait to hear if it's been thrown out or be invited to a face to face I would be grateful for information

Cales,the system is perpetually changing,it took almost 6 months to get the full PIP for my dear Cecilia and she was a cut and tied case being paralised and without speech etc etc but that was over 3 years ago hopefully the new agency handling on behalf of the govt are a better deal?,,,,,,,good luck.....skis

ISA is ATOS sadly - in my experience its not a better system / deal. Although it may not be as long as 6 months, depends if you go to the appeal stage I guess then it would be 6 months or more.

Hi there, sorry i do not know the backdrop to your case but when it comes to PIP the one thing that helped me during a two year battle was a website called Benefits & Work. It costs £15 to join. It is the best £15 i have ever spent. I got their booklets( free once you are a member) re-did my paperwork, won my claim. I could not have done it without their advice, you have to understand what the pip people are looking for, once itbis explained, it all becomes clear.

Good luck, i hope it works out for you. I think it probably saved my life . I was so upset and distressed trying to make them understand, but i was not saying it the way they need to hear it.
