TOPIC: Had PIP assessment today

Had PIP assessment today 5 months 1 day ago #174841

Well, I went along to my Capita assessment today. The paramedic who 'processed' me came across as professional and polite. She seemed knowledgable too.
She asked me all the questions I expected from this site's guidelines. She HAD read my 41 pages of medical evidence as she referenced things that she could not have known about me, without reading said documents.

Now I am waiting to see if her report matches her words and apparent attitude to me on the day.

I'll report back when I find out.

Thanks for the update. PIP have been taking up to 8 weeks after the face2face, although the wait has been a bit shorter of late.

I had my pip assessment and the report was good you must tell and give details of any changes since you filled in the first pip report. My condition changed so filled in second report about a month before assessment. Requested a report which when read looks as if I will get mobility lower rate, will wait till official letter comes.
I now have to go for a ESA disability assessment mid December so see how that goes had a taxi both ways for pip £80 will see if the ESA will do the same.
