PIP Report

Morning all, if you remember I had a home assessment in October, this was abandoned because of extreme panic attack.

Had a F2F on 29 December , wasn't to bad, I have now received the HP report, and can honestly say she didn't deviate from my answers or made any assumptions .

I have received a progress report saying " they are sorry it's taking a long time, but now have all my info"

I have been reading that the " decision maker can change the decipher scores!!!!

So what I really would like to know from you lovely people, is this so and how long will I now have to wait for a decision ,

  • Hello there

    I'm so sorry but I don't know the answer to your first question about the decision maker.

    Unfortunately as to how long you will have to wait for a decision is anyone's guess!

    I very much hope that you hear soon and are awarded in your favour.

    Wishing you wellness and peace

  • Oh thank you so much for your reply I really appreciate , I have phoned to chase up, but they are very rude, honestly, I actually asked the lady why her attitude was so abrupt , she changed when I said this!!!

    Honestly it's their job to advise, not make you feel like you shouldn't be claiming benefits!!!

  • I was going to suggest that you gave them a call. Well done for doing that and for standing your ground.

    Were you given any idea how much longer the decision would take? xx

  • Yes a agree they can be helpfiul in your call...the pip some will give info to how long it will be...but they are changing sum guidelines for end january..so fone now...if i were youxx good luck

  • Thank you for your reply, no the lady said I would have to wait.

    They received my Atos report on the 5 January.

    Kind Regards

  • Yes I did stand my ground, I started to panic!! Felt like I was being told off for asking a " stupid question" but I soon realised its not stupid wanting to know if they had come to a decision .

  • Hello, my daughter in law has added my points on my PIP form ( I hadn't realised I could do this )

    Daily living scored 19

    Mobility scored 16

    But after reading some stories I am now aware the DWP can change the HP deciphers ,

    Oh well we will see... This has been going on since August when I first completed my claim form, the anxiety and stress this has put me through is unbearable, but we are all the same, it's a terrible way to have to live and wait for a decision 😟

  • Good luck with the decision . The assessor does not make the actual decision about whether you will get PIP or not they just make the recommendation to the DWP who make this final decision.

    Hope it all goes in your favour and you get a decision soon.x

  • Thank you so much, apreciate your reply and concern, thank you.


  • I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your outcome, and I sincerely hope that you achieve a good award.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • Thank you so much I really appreciate your concern.

    It's nice to know your not on your own, so glad I found this site .

  • Afternoon everyone, just an update on my PIP, I have now received the dreaded brown envelope and all is well.

    I have been granted PIP!!!

    I'm very pleased with the outcome, so thank you all for your kindness and support,

    Kind Regards
