TOPIC: Pip assessment

Pip assessment 4 months 2 weeks ago #192400

Had my pip assessment today. It was held at home although this wasn't asked for. The assessor arrived at the door without any identification. This was apparently because ATOS has changed their name and new I'd has not been given to the assessors. Anyone else had this happen to them. Luckily my husband was home and answered the door.but we were very surprised that a male assessor had been sent to a female claimants home without proper Id on him. Any thoughts on this.

I don't see why they could not have presented their original ATOS identification, I can't believed that this has been removed without a replacement being made available.

You can make a complaint, but it might be worth holding off until you get the Decision.

You should be able to request copy of the report by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim next week.

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

Just an update. Got my decision today and it was all good. Enhanced rate for both daily living and mobility. I was so surprised. It is an ongoing award with no further assessment until after August 2027. Thank you all for this site without which I'm sure this would have been a different outcome.
