TOPIC: Had PIP Assesment Today.

Had PIP Assesment Today. 1 month 2 weeks ago #175340

I have been a member for some time but never posted. I had my assessment today it lasted 1hr 10 minutes. All in all it went well, though very stressful. The assessor said she had been a nurse for 27yrs. The only question I found not relevant was when she asked me if I had ever worked. I am 60 yrs old by the way. I have worked all my life until I become ill. Point of the post is I felt it went well and unless there is no fairness in this world I think I will transfer from DLA to PIP on the same rates as I had before the assessment. I have used the site many times for updates so Thank You so much for all the help and advice...Was told today it is taking 8 weeks for decisions so will update once I hear anything.
