    Missed phone call from DWP PIP 10th Apr 18 at 1:54 PM
    Currently waiting for a decision for pip and today I have had a missed phone call from the DWP (I was in the bathroom) Do they normally ring back? I assume it was the DM ringing but I'm a bit nervous as to why they would ring, any ideas.

    Looking at your previous posts you appeared to have had the assessment and the decision. Is that correct or am I misreading?

    If you can tell us exactly what stage you are at it may give us more of a clue.

    I had my face to face assessment last month (review) and I am now awaiting their decision.

    Ah. Okay.

    It's just that, normally, when the DWP call us we get withheld number or no number at all. Must be to do with different offices

    A little unusual that no message was left. There is generally a message simply stating it's from DWP and they will call back within x hours.

    Could be they need to confirm details or otherwise inform you of something, as decisions are normally by post only.
