    Better late than never Dawn, and this is the case with ESA and PIP, in which talks are currently undergoing to make ESA and PIP claims online online only.

    According to Iain Duncan Smith this will save 20% more on spending than is being already done.

    But, as everyone knows, this will lower the chances of passing any Assessments totally. So, having your home assessment done now, I wish you all the best.

    Regards,

    Les.

      Did you have to have a letter from your GP insisting thishad to be a a home visit. 18 months is a long time to wait!

      Best of luck.I had a home PIPS visit and the man assessing me was very kind and compassionate. I have been awarded 2 years daily living It has helped me enormously. If you are awarded it or ESA you can apply for the Warm Home scheme. You can get £140 off gas and electricity
