    DWP not received PIP medical report yet

    DWP not received PIP medical report yet 19th Apr 17 at 8:07 AM
    I had my face to face assessment for PIP 5 days ago and I phoned up to request a copy of the report and the guy on the phone said they haven't received a copy of it yet and it takes over a week to be scanned over.
    Having read other threads, people seem to be able to request their report the next day so I'm worried something may have happened.

    After all "5 days ago" would be separated from today by two bank holidays and a weekend. Even ATOS/Capita staff are allowed time off work..

    Leave it a week or so. Mine was there within an hour or two (I didn't request it but had a text to say they had it)

    But there have been four non-working days in a row, and delays happen at the best of times.

    Likelihood is it's caught in the system and will get where it needs to in the next few days

    I've phoned dwp today. Still no sign of the report so I phoned atos who confirmed they sent it electronically on Saturday. Hmm

    Why the big rush to get the report? Surely wait for the decision then ask for the report....

    Nothing has happened, Your claim/report is likely waiting in a queue to be reviewed by a decision maker. You are unlikely to get a decision this week or next, Maybe 3 weeks depending how busy they are.

    By getting the report won't change the outcome of the decision.

    Being sent on Saturday doesn't mean it will have been actioned by DWP yet. It depends on the number of reports and the number of DMs available to work on them.

    Just to forewarn you there maybe an 8 week or more wait for the decision. Although, as above, mine was with them on same day, I didn't have a decision for 7 weeks - whcih was the point I got frustrated and rang on text relay, decision had been made previous day, didn't get the letter for another week.

    All you can do is try to put it to the back of your mind for now
