TOPIC: DLA to PIP

DLA to PIP 6 months 3 weeks 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
