PIP assessment report

Finally almost 6 weeks after my daughters assessment the report was returned to DWP and today i recieved a copy. Can't even remember being that nervous as i was reading through it. Added up all the points scored and Enhanced for both. A very honest report from start to finish. Every single thing i told him during that assessment is in the report. Including extra evidence from contacting 2 people on the contacts list. Now i just have to wait for the decision. I know it's rare to go against the report so fingers crossed.

Thank you to Alice for your advice last week, much appreciated.

    Thank you. Backdated money in the bank this morning, which reflects Enhanced rate for both. No decision letter as yet. I can relax for now, at least. :beer:
  • Brilliant news Poppy....good to hear of the times they get things right!

    Hopefully the official award letter will come soon, and you (she) will have an 'ongoing' award with no more stress for a few years!

    Settle down and relax now.....enjoy the run up to Christmas!

    Hi
    Has anyone any ideas how long you wait for a decision letter after receiving the PA4 (assessors report)
    I received my report in Monday’s post but am still waiting for the decision letter.
    Thanks

    Probably about a week or so for them to make the decision, but the letter takes a couple of weeks to get to you. They had paid the money in my bank account a week before I received the letter. If you give them a call, when they have made the decision they will read it out over the phone, however to quote Poppy, they almost always go on the report, so you should have a fairly certain idea of what's happening from the report.

    Thankyou so much for taking the time to answer so promptly
    My report is quite good so am worried that they might alter it but it seems that that they go mostly on what the assessor has recommended.
    Just hope the decision arrives before Christmas.
    Think I will give them a ring beginning of Christmas week if I’ve not received anything
    Thankyou

    How long is a piece of string? Some people are waiting weeks while others just a week or even a few days. My daughters report arrived on Thursday last week. Backdated money in the bank Saturday (Bank pays early on weekends) decision letter didn't arrive till yesterday. Mostly they go with the report so if the report states an award then expect that.
