Will I need a f2f if I didn't need one last time?

I have bipolar and last year I received Universal credit (limited capacity one) and also PIP. I didn't need an assessment for either last time and they actually gave me more points than I was expecting. My universal credit will run out in March and I'm curious to know whether or not I will likely need a f2f if nothings changed?

    Hi,

    No one can really answer that one i'm afraid. I've heard of people having a paper based decision first time and then needing an assessment the 2nd time. Just send in as much evidence as possible for each one and hopefully you won't need the assessment. Good luck.

      Yes you'll continue to get paid until a decision is made. If a decision doesn't go in your favour then payments will continue for 4 weeks then they will stop. If a decision goes in your favour you'll have a new award date. Good luck Ross and please do come back and let me know the decision.

      Don't forget middle of next week you can ring DWP and ask for a copy of the assessment report. This will give you some idea what the decision will be as mostly they go with that report.

      Thank you Ross and Deborah for your kind words! xx

      Hi Denise, I got my decision for PIP last Saturday and i failed as they went with the assessment report. I have not had any pip payment since 8th October 2017, £133.00, is this right as I had a end date 24th September 2017 from the tribunal and had to reapply again?

      Thanks Twiglet,

      Hi,

      I'm sorry to hear that.

      Yes this is correct. Mostly those that went to Tribunal have an end date rather than a review date. When this happens if a decision hasn't been made by the end date then payments will stop.

      As you know the next step is the MR and you have 1 month from the date of the decision to ask for this. Good luck.

      Hi,

      No, it's not too soon. When you ring if the person refuses to send it out then put the phone down and ring again. Some people will refuse but what they forget to tell you is that we have every right to request that report, even before the decision is made. They can't refuse to send it. Another thing, they can only send it if both copies have been recieved back. Fingers crossed for you Deborah, for a possitive outcome. Please do let me know. xx

      That's good. They don't really know when a decision will be made, only a Case Manager/decision maker can tell you that. It also depends on the backlog in your area. Some wait 2 weeks, while others wait 6 or more. That report will give you a very good idea on what the decision will be. They mostly go with that report. Hopefully you'll recieve it by middle of next week. xx
