PIP timescales 7 months 1 week ago #171303

F wrote: How long does it take for the PIP2 to come? They texted at 8am on monday to say it had been sent. I'm anxious about having time to fill it in with help from my CPN.


Usually 7-10 days if it takes longer then contact the DWP again.

As previously advised the questions are explained in the PIP Claim guide.

For qu 3, does it make sense to tick yes for 3a (use an aid or appliance to prepare/cook a simple meal) and 3b (help from another person) if your carer does all the meal prep, but there are small parts you could do with aids?

The question (3a) is whether you can reliably prepare and cook a meal on the majority of days with the use of suitable aids. If you cannot do this or can only complete part of the process then you should say no to the use of aids.

Question (3b) ask whether you can reliably prepare and cook a meal on the majority of days with assistance from someone else, again if you cannot do this even with assistance then you should answer no.

Thanks for the help and guides, I've posted it today! I'm also glad that I asked my CPN, as she pointed out difficulties mixing with people and going out that I hadn't said.
