Pip review

Hi everyone i dont really put much on hear but i always read people's comments which i find very helpful... I've just had my pip review 3wks ago and had a decision back today Friday opened it up and to my great surprise I have been awarded enhanced for both mobility and care and I continued to read the letter to migrate surprise I have been awarded it for 10yrs with a light review i was so shocked my hands were shaking as i red threw the decision makers comments they have override ATOS decision because of my medical notes and the letters from my consultants so some goodness has come from the DWP for once good luck to everybody else

Yes! I’m in the US, but apparently it seems like a nightmare there to get benefits. Good for you!

Its a shock 10yrs i had to keep reading it to take it in because the f2f was a nightmare the assessor kept trying to trick me in to talking to her but it was the DWP that gave me more points because of my paperwork

That’s great I am dreading my review I have enhanced for both for 4 years but will be reviewed next year

Reply

Hi its just the stress of it all makes you so poorly mine took 6mths from start to finish thats why they do it a year before hand the reviews are worse because of how long they take

Reply

My end date is March 2021 so I know they will contact me next year so you know if everyone who has enhanced gets the soft touch or is it f2f again

Reply

My application has been rejected. I am going to CAB Friday to put together a letter. Will I have to have another assessment. I found the first very stressful and I really don’t want another.

Not sure my friend she was on standard for both and they have given her no points at all shes gone to a mandatory reconsideration so shes waiting on that

Very, very pleased for you... pain free wishes 👍
