Hi all

I have had a f2f 18th dec2017 still waiting for the decision but had a letter saying we have everything we need a decision will made made soon ?

I am so anxious and feeling unwell thinking about it 

I dont know how its decided but i do know how i am daily 

I cant cook or prepare a meal ..

I need help in and out of the bath and my husband has to wash my upper body and hair

i need help in dressing lower body regarding shoes socks tights etc

i can walk but im unsteady and it varies how far and length of time  it takes 

can anyone advise me how they think the decision will go 

im not sleeping very well because of the worry i already suffer depression and this is not helping

    HI Angela,

    I'm afraid no one can advice you on what the decision will be. Have you asked for a copy of the assessment report? This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be. This report will also help if the decision doens't go in your favour and you need to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration.

    There's no timescales for deicisons, it all depends on the backlog in your area. Hopefully it won't be too long. I know it's very stressful. Every single perosn who claims PIP or ESA goes through exactly the same stress, so you're not a lone. Good luck.

      An award is based on points scored with the PIP descriptors. There's 2 parts to PIP, Daily Living and Mobility and you need to score 8 points in either or both for an award of Standard, 12 points for Enhanced. You can google PIP self test and do the online one, this will gve you some idea what you could possibly score. Bear in mind that's only a guide. Evidence plays a huge part in an award.

      Hi Angela, Denise is right, theres no black and white, please try to not make your self poorly because no matter how you wait for your result it will still be whatever it will be, if hopefully yours is a good result but if its not on the first result you can always put in an MR and take it from there, is this your first claim

      Then hopefully yours may be a quicker response time, there's no knowing, one little problem is that DLA and PIP are so different, DLA was all about the disease's you suffer from and seemingly nothing to do without how it really effects you or how you manage and PIP is totally the opposite, its all about the way your illness effects you on a daily basis and how you need help ect

      Hi Angela,

      I hope the results go well for you, I transferred from DLA to PIP and was awarded enhanced on both care and mobility.  As Denise advised, ask for a copy of the assessment report as this will give you some idea of what the decision may be and the report may be helpful if you need to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration, which hopefully you won't.  Please let us know how you get on xx

      Great advice Alexandria,

      The problem people have when transfering from DLA is they have no idea what PIP is all about. When transfering or not, it's always a good idea to do your research. As you stated, DLA and PIP are completely different.

      Hi All 

      Feeling very sick and nervous 

      Just rang DWP asked for a copy of the assessment report also asked  on the progress 

      She told me a decision has been made today but the outcome wont show on the system till tomorrow because it uploads over night 

      She told me that they received the report on the 21st dec and with the xmas and new years holiday 

      It appears quick for the result 

      not sure how to take it but hope and pray is a good result for me

      That would be good, if they say you have been declined (hopefully not) ask for your MR immediately to get the ball rolling
