Pip assessment today

Had my assessment this morning

Here's how it went

Before I left had agonising stomach cramps as if needing toilet so I went and nothing happened, got up and cramps started again, back on loo, nothing happened again so just left for assessment, kept having stomach cramps all the way there on the train.

Then my sister and I got lost and I ended up being half an hour late for it.

Just before entering the building where my assessment was being held a bird crapped on me

And finally during my assessment, lady got me up on the bed, I was to lay down flat and try to lift my legs up, I couldn't manage this but whilst trying my left leg went into a really bad cramp, I had to get off the bed and jump around the assessment room squelling like an idiot with the pain haha

Apart from all that it seemed to go ok I think, had a really nice woman, so now just to wait for that dreaded brown envelope to come through my letterbox

Hope everyone is as well as they can be and also hope everyone is enjoying the lovely sunshine we have been having 😃 xxx

  • Hi. I have my PIP assessment on 27th april. Im not sure what to expect. Can u give me a rough idea of what they say and do pls. Thanx julie

  • Hi Julie, sorry for the late reply, at your pip assessment you will just be asked all the questions that you answered in your pip form ie can you cook a meal, can you wash yourself, can you dress yourself? Always go by how you feel your worst days to answer these questions, after all the questions, you will have the physical examination, in mine she dropped a piece if paper on the floor and asked me to bend down and pick it up, I refused to do that coz I know it would cause me pain and discomfort, she was fine with that, also asked me to raise my arms up, put them behind my back, got me to lay flat on the bed and lift my legs up as far as I could, mines bearly left the bed and while trying to do this my left leg went into a bad cramp lol, you can refuse to do anything that you cant do, anything that would cause you pain and discomfort, my assessment only lasted an hour and the assessor was very nice, hope this has helped you a bit, good luck with your assessment, hope it goes well for you, keep me updated x
