TOPIC: PIP assessor's report

PIP assessor's report 1 year 1 week ago #168469

Today I received the copy of the assessor's report that I asked for. He has one or two things wrong but on the whole it's very fair. The descriptors he's ticked give me 16 points for daily living and 12 for mobility. Does this mean I should definitely get an award or can the decision makers ignore this. It's so stressful waiting to hear.

Hi Flavia,

The Decision Makers usually go with the assessor's recommendations. If they don't, for some reason, that would put you in a strong position for an appeal!

Thankyou. The only other thing I'm worried about is he's written that I stated every day was the same due to pain, fatigue, breathlessness and light headedness. I actually told him it varied, I'd maybe have a couple of slightly better days a week. He said so two good, 5 bad? I said more like 2 bad and 5 hellish. He laughed at that but if I'm out in my wheelchair on a slightly better day, am I risking being done for fraud. I think I'm just getting totally paranoid now.

As long as you made it clear on your claim form that there is a degree of variability in your conditions thane it should not be an issue.

Sitting here crying happy tears. My PIP decision came through today, enhanced for both, exactly the same as my DLA. I've been awarded it to September 2020 and they've acknowledged my condition is variable. I am so relieved. A massive Thankyou for all your help and your wonderful guides, thanks again.
