TOPIC: Starting PIP process now

Starting PIP process nowGood luck! 1 month 1 week ago #195137

I was asked what my previous job was & I just told them who I worked for, they didn't ask a particular role. They then asked how long ago I did this job. Hope this helps.

Had my f2f on Thurs 17th lasted 1 hr 45 mins. I found the HP to be friendly and was very good through out and listened to what is I suppose my story of my daily life. I done as per instructions on this wonderful site, I answered yes/no and managed to give in detail how things are and time spent doing them etc and help needed. So aleast that is now behind me and I await to see the outcome of it all now.

You can request a copy of your assessment report by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim.

PIP Decision are taking 2-4 weeks at the moment.

So I phoned up the DWP this morning waiting 24 mins for them to answer.I asked re the medical report from the HP,and was told that I am not allowed to ask for it until the DM has made his/her mind up if I get PIP,then when I get the decision in the post I can ask for the HP report 1 week after that.I explained sure if some details where not correctly noted etc I could write into the DM before they make their minds up.The lady said NO it does not work like that..so they must have changed their rules on this.I asked how long does this all go on for, she said I could expect a result within 5 wks.

I don't believe that there has been any change in DWP policy and suspect that if you phoned back and spoke to another call centre operator they would process your request.

I got my assessment report before I got the decision latter. I had to wait a few weeks for it. I kept ringing to see if they had the report and reminded them I wanted a copy.
Good job I got a copy as there was a lot of things wrong/missed out in it
Hope that helps
