Hi, I have read some posts on here regarding time scales for PIP reconsiderations and I wondered if anyone has had one recently in 2022 and can advise how long they had to wait? I'm in the West Midlands area. Thank you.

    Between 2-12 weeks, sometimes longer. Backlogs are huge.

    Hi, thank you for your response. Did you have one and if so, what was the exact timescale for you, please? I know they say 2-12 weeks, I was just hoping to hear some experiences of 2022, to work out a rough timescale between 2-12 weeks. Thank you x

    Other peoples timescales won't be of any help to you because everyone's case is different. The standard timescale is anything up to 12 weeks, sometimes longer. This is the closest timescale you'll get. To be honest, there's really no timescales because a decision will be made when it's made.

    I am hoping someone who has been through the process in 2022 will comment, as I would find that helpful. Thank you for your comments. I will see if anyone with recent experience can add more.

    Sent an MR request in on 7th February (I'm helping someone), DWP acknowledged receipt, still yet to hear on the MR.  So 10 weeks and counting.

    Initial application sent in July 2021 (acknowledged)
    Assessment first week of January 2022 - with less than 24 hours notice
    Decision mid-January 2022 - DWP / assessor hadn't contacted any of the relevant medical professionals and so assessment was wildly inaccurate.

    To be honest, as someone who works in the public sector, I'm amazed they can get away with this.

    10 weeks, gosh that's not good at all. Same with you, they did not contact any of my relevant medical professionals and the report was so inaccurate, I was furious. It's honestly just so disgraceful. Were you assessed by Capita? Thanks x

    It's very rare they contact anyone. It's your responsibilty to send the evidence to support your claim. The same applies for the MR and Tribunal, if it gets that far. You need to make sure you send all relevant evidence.
