Hi, I had my pip medical on the 1St october for Epilepsy with ongoing seizures, depression and anxiety. I asked for a copy of my report from dwp, on the points I've worked it out as 12 for daily life. 12 for mobility. Do dwp actually go off this?? Or do they look at and change the points? I rang earlier to see what was taking so long and they said I will have my decision on Wednesday.. Any advice or help would be great..

Thankyou

      Sorry I haven't wrote it very clear have I lol. I had my medical on the 1St october, I received a letter on the 15th saying they had everything they needed now to make a decision on the claim. I rang dwp up on the 15th to ask for a copy of my medical report from atos, which has to be requested to the decision maker before a copy of it is sent out. I received my medical then used the pip self test online, I used the answers that the lady from atos had used, the points came out at 12 for daily life, and 12 for mobility.. I am yet to receive my decision.. Does this make sense? Xx

      If you ask dwp for a copy of your medical there is like 4 or 5 different answers that atos tick. On the pip self test you put the answers in, which I put the answers in from my medical report, then at the end it tells you how many points you'd get, sorry I'm not sure if I'm putting it right lol xx
