    PIP forms, no letter of receipt

    PIP forms, no letter of receipt 3rd Jan 19 at 6:04 PM
    With PIP previous PIP forms, I sent them and less than a week later I received a letter saying they had my forms and were looking at the information and contacting my GP for more information.

    I sent off my review forms and they arrived on December 14th and I know they arrived and were signed for, however I haven't received anything to say they have them or are looking at them.

    Is there any time frame on this, I guess there will be delays due to the holiday period.

    Just so you know, they very rarely contact anyone for any evidence. The onus is always on the claimant to make sure it's sent to support their claim.

    Maybe they're a bit slower off the mark due to the end of the year/Christmas holidays?!

    I always provide a lot of evidence that proves as much as I can, but that has been a letter I have received in the past, saying they were contacting my GP, I don't believe they did contact them, so perhaps it was a template letter they sent out?

    They do sometimes contact GPs for information. I have seen this in appeal paperwork.

    I've still had nothing back from them a month after they have received the forms.

    Me either and i returned my daughters review forms in the beginning of November. If you're still receiving your payments then i wouldn't worry. If they hadn't received the forms then your money would have stopped. There's nothing you can do in the meantime. Most have face to face assessments so expect that.

    Same, no text or letter of confirmation. I had to phone in the end because I had the letter to say that the deadline was nearly up and they hadn't received my review form.

    It turned out the letter had just crossed over with the receipt of my form and everything was fine.
