TOPIC: Assessments

Assessments 3 weeks 3 days ago #200224

Hi you lovely peeps

Just noticing about some peeps not having any more assessments, and wondered, I didn’t get my decision letter so my WO asked for a copy, on this is says ‘ongoing” which I’ve never seen, is that the same thing as no more assessments or not. Doesn’t matter too much as I get my pension (at last) next year!

Thanks

The change is to the ESA assessment process only, PIP is not effected.

An On-Going award is as close as PIP gets to an indefinite award, but you should still expect to be reassessed at some time in the future.

There's an article in the News section that covers how this works.
