TOPIC: PIP initial claim

PIP initial claim 10 months 4 days ago #171152

I have received the so- called invitation to claim PIP. To say I'm overwhelmed and distressed would not even cover it.
I saw my CPN today and she made the call for me - I have a severe mental disorder. She and my psychiatrist have provided a very detailed report on my illness and functionality. What I'm thinking now is as she has provided evidence for me, will DWP find it odd that she is my representative?
Thanks

No it will be fine. Have a look at the PIP Claim guide for more information about the process and the criteria against which you are going to be assessed.

Well the postman struggled today with a large ominous looking brown envelope. It was the PIP2 - surely that's a bit quick? My CPN only made the phone call last Tuesday. Is this unusual?

It's faster than we would expect but just means the DWP have finally got their act together.
