    P.I.P. timescales... 15th Aug 13 at 10:23 AM
    hi. just wondering if anyone had a rough idea of how long claims take please. If anyone had already claimed and payment is now being made how long? I had waited 11 weeks untill i rang pip and got atos phone number and contacted them direct to chase up my appointment, of which i got a cancellation (yey). If i ring pip they just say as its a new benefit they cant say how long but estimate is 10 weeks. tuesday will be bang on 3 calender months since i originally claimed.
    thanks

    On a similar note - I understand that EVERYONE should have been contacted re Reassessment to PIP by the end of September 2017 - so the letter will soon be arriving through the letter box !!

    I sent my form back in April, had my F2F on 29th June and had my decision today - enhanced mobility and daily living.

    I was transferring from DLA.
