Hello Aim425,I really do believe it is a postcode lottery on decisions.I only waited 4 weeks in gtr Manchester. I guess it depends in how many applications each area has: I would ring and ask
I am waiting for my reconsideration and it's been 7 weeks and still waiting it will be 9weeks come 8th Oct fed up waiting took them a week to refuse pip and months to reconsider I'm in Scotland
I'm still waiting for my form to arrive 👹
I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are still awaiting this, and I think it is varying a great deal from region to region due to the backlogs.
I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your reconsideration and please take care of yourself.
All my hopes and dreams for you
I personally was7months but things have improved since 2014
i asked for a reconsideration foe mobility ,
from the time i asked to the time i got a letter , i think was about 10 weeks.
hope this helps.
When I phoned for my Mandatory reconsideration, I was told it could be 9 weeks before I received the result. I'm in Essex.
Fluffy and healing hugs to you all.

I called PIP, the lady I spoke to was very nice, she said the case worker has been working on my case end of last week & looks like they are working on it today they have not made a decision as yet.. so I will ring Friday if I haven't heard anything. Makes me wonder how they come up with their decision sometimes.
have you recieved an aknowlegment letter
i never did as i did not know they sent one out . i left it for 11 months as welfare rights were involved and i just trusted that it was in hand i even phoned to ask if a consultants letter i had would be of any use they said no as my paperwork had been passed onto another dept --liars been thought it before same story . never recieved paper work 2 times before . i should have know better to trust them not . but i was severly deppress at that point so did not have the bottle to even phone . anyway i lost nearly 2 years money due to there lies . so do check up if youve not recieved an acknowlegment sorry i really cant think or spell today
Yes. Do check up. Even if it's a quick phone call and you're not at your best, try to ring the DWP. They keep a record of your calls.
But as for the acknowledgement letter, I haven't received one either. I'm going on what the person I spoke to on the phone said (them having received my Reconsideration and having to wait for the decision maker to look at it).
Perhaps I'll give them a call later and ask for an Acknowledgement Letter...
I received a text message of acknowledgement, the woman I spoke to today said they received my paperwork that I sent aswell. If I don't hear anything by Friday I will phone again (if I remember, dam fibro fog)
Good luck Aim425
I'm waiting for a decision about my Mandatory Reconsideration regarding my PIP which I was refused. The reason why I was refused... For ringing the DWP and ATOS to cancel my assessment as I'd been recently discharged from hospital after collapsing which was thought to have been a heart attack. It turned out I was severely anaemic with very low blood pressure - something I've suffered with all my life due to a blood disorder (Thalassaemia). The DWP and ATOS both told me to ring them back when I was feeling better to arrange another assessment. Seems they both lied because during that time I received a letter from DWP saying I didn't qualify for PIP because I didn't give a "good reason" to cancel my assessment. By the way, I requested a home assessment but was denied it on the basis that I can make it to and from hospital admissions... in an ambulance. What a joke!
I've been waiting since 10th August for the reconsideration decision and have rang the DWP for updates and told that it normally takes 7-8 weeks but mine was going to take longer. Hmm... I hope not longer than my last appeal which I had to wait over a year and a half for and then be awarded lowest mobility - indefinitely. The PIP was for a change of circumstances as my health greatly deteriorated since the DLA award which I made a claim for in April. Nearly 6 months on and I've got rent & council tax arrears with a list of bills that I can't pay. I'm also having to pay for supplements (vitamin D, B12 and iron) because the NHS here deem them "specials" and don't prescribe them - even though I had Pernicious Anaemia and Osteomalacia (rickets) with severe anaemia.
I can't wait to appeal again. NOT!
After applying on June 22nd 2015 I got my decision today I have been awarded the standard rate for both...
Thank you! Thank you!! Thank You Everyone for your support your encouragements. After waiting almost...
after 29 weeks from having my niece fill out the form for me in April I really do not have the energy...
