    Good luck Dru. Next week you can ring PIp and ask them to send you a copy of your assessment report ( the same for ESA) this will give you an idea what the decision will be as mostly they go with that report.

    As with any decision, unfortunately there's no timescales.

      I know you're anxious but 2 weeks really isn't long. The decision can take anywhere between 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer for ESA.

      I'm very surprised they are still providing the transport for you because 100 miles is a lot. Can't you change hospital to somewhere closer to home? That seems a more logical solution to me.

      Berwick infirmary is only 8 miles away Denise but because it's England then next 1 is Edinburgh roughly about 90 to 100 miles coz I stay in borders there not now supplying transport so I had 2 ask charity called berwickshire wheels so I need 2 pay them and go and c social work in hospital to pay 4 it if not then I won't b able 2 attend anymore appointments which is alot. So al need 2 speak 2 hospital and tell them am not alone down here for transport 2 hospital but in the end it's my health that's suffering but al wait and c thanks 4 ur concern Denise x😀

      For SDP you need to live alone, or classed as living alone. No one claims Carers Allowance for you. Have a daily living award of PIP or mid/high rate care DLA. You must also be claiming Income Related ESA not Contribution based.

      If you fall into that criteria then you ring ESA and either ask to claim SDP over the phone and ask them to send you an IS10 form. It's one of those benefits that's very simple to claim, just a few questions about who lives with you and if anyone claims Carers Allowance for you.

      You can ring them anytime but they will only send you a copy of the report once they've received both copies back. Receiving the paper copy always takes longer than the digital one.

      I know you rang ESA and they're sending out the report. Don't expect it Monday or Tuesday though. DWP external post also has to go through a mail sorting process and post coming from them can often take 7 days or more.

      You also said about the PIP report being received and asked me when you can ring for that report. I answered with "you can ring anytime but they won't send you a copy of the report until they've received both copies back" both copies means the paper based one and the digital one. The test you received means they've got the digital one only. The paper copy will follow in a few working days, so approx Wednesday of next week they'll receive that. You can then ring and ask for your copy to be sent. If you ring before both copies have been received and they adds a note to the computer for them to send you a copy, chances are that note will be ignored and yours won't be sent. Then you'll have to ring again.

      I know you're anxious Dru, everyone is but wait until Middle of next week to ring for the PIP report.
