My PIP is due to expire on 20 May next. I duly filled in,submitted further medical evidence and returned the form by the due date. It got delayed in the Christmas post. Okay, so I phoned DWP and the said 'don't worry' it will get into the system eventually. It did.
By March I had heard nothing so I phoned DWP again. It was in the system and was with Independent Assessors (formerly ATOS). So, I phoned I.A. on 11 March. They said I would be having a F2F.
And then Coronovirus.
So today I phoned I.A. again only to be told my case along with another 44K cases had been recalled by the DWP for decision. They told me to ring DWP which I have just done. The conversation went like this:
Me: I realise the world has been tipped upside down but could someone please explain to me, personally, what is happening with my review case.
Him: That's right, you will not be having a F22, neither will you be having a Telephone Assessment. We will be making our decision directly.
Me: So, what happens if you decide 'Nil Points' based on no F2F or 'telephone chat'?
Him: Well, Its M.R. then.
Me: Isn't that rather discrimination against 44K people trapped in treacle?
Him: 'So what?'
Me: Rather patronising don't you think?
Me: I take it this call is being recorded?
Me: For once speechless....
Any thoughts/ideas/comments/suggestions anyone because I feel sure Nil Points is on its way...
