Hi all,

​As most people know i had my PIP assessment last Thursday.

​When will i be notified regarding a descision? Will i get a text message or do i just wait for a letter in the post?

​Thank you.

    You would "normally" hear within 2 weeks, notice I didn't say will LOL

    After 2 weeks ring and ask, they will then tell you how long, no good ringing before 2 weeks though, good luck

      Some decisions take longer than that, some take less than that. There's not really a time to give to be honest. When they have all the evidence they need they will either text you, if you gave a mobile number or they'll send you a letter telling you they have all the info they need. It's not been a week yet. I'm sure a decision will be made soon. I know it's difficult to relax Natalie but there's nothing else you can do until that decision is made. Good luck.

    Hi Natalie

    You may get a text. You may not. I was told that it depends on the person looking into your case.

    I'm into my try week now . I almost got my letter and decision 2 weeks ago. But then they decided to send my report back to atos to ask more questions. So I'm unsure of I will hear this week now. Which will be 6 weeks. I hope you get your letter soon and good luck x

    If you want to see your assessment report before the decision; just leave leave it a few more days then you can ask DWP for a copy of the report. This will tell you what the assessor has recommended. All the best for you.
