TOPIC: Pip assessment

Pip assessment 1 month 3 weeks ago #196178

I am already receiving pip and attended a pip assessment in Januaryl as it runs out in January 2018.
I have Parkinson's and was not in a good state as my medication hadn't kicked in. I was told that I won't have the assessment then but to go home and wait for notification of a home visit.
To date I have received nothing.
Do I contact Capita, DWS, or wait?

There's a section in the PIP Claim guide about the assessment and the questions you are likely to be asked.

You can still have someone with you even though it's at home.

You can decide where the interview will be held.

They are a guest in your home and have no right to look around unless you are happy to allow it, although most assessors do not ask.
