TOPIC: DLA to PIP

DLA to PIP 1 year 1 month ago #188371

Hi Gordon,
My completed PIP2 form supporting evidence was received by DWP on 14/03/17 and since then I have been waiting for F2F consultation appointment. Shall I call DWP next week to enquire on progress of my application or should I give them more time. What would you advice?
Many thanks

You need to contact the Assessment provider for your postcode.

Hi All,
Just to update, I have finally received my F2F appointment letter today for Enfield assessment centre, which is 40 miles each way. Rang up ATOS and requested a closer centre and got an appointment for a centre 6 miles away. Don't understand why I was not given closest centre at the first place (now I have lost the option of changing my appointment). anyway Thanks ATOS!

I wish to get over with this PIP saga once and for all - which started 20/12/16. DWP received my PIP2 form back on 14/03/16 and now F2F on 01/05/17. I am a strong believer of not thinking or talking about my disability because it only makes it worse for me...but I don't think DWP will let me forget...but I am trying and will keep on trying!!!

I think we are all the same in this respect, it is how we cope. However, to score the points you need, you will have to become "disabled" for the assessment

You're absolutely right David
I wish it was not the case...!
