    Question How long for pip decision?

    Sent off my partner's pip form and evidence five weeks ago but have not heard anything back yet. I phoned the helpline was told it was with the Assessors.

    All of his consultants provided evidence and also a letter requesting he be excused a face to face interview because of no mental capacity or ability to take part in the process.

    Do you think five weeks is a good sign that they may be do a paper-based award?


    Thanks

    I made the initial phone call to claim and ask for an application form at end of nov 2015. I just recieved my award letter today. So nine weeks in total

    Thanks, teabag :-) Did you have a paper-based assessment?

    Depends on where you live; some areas have a higher backlog than others. I requested a review in November, sent the form off in December and have only just got an appointment for an assessment for next week so it's taken 3 months plus another few weeks for the decision to come through. Hopefully you'll get a paper based assessment but from what I've read, they're not very sympathetic and you may have a bit of a fight on your hands. If you've got evidence from the GP and/or consultant that should help.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I rang up yesterday and they told me no face to face was needed and it's now with the Dwp case manager and we would hear soon so fingers crossed! Not sure how long we will have to wait but some closure will be a relief, as its been so stressful.
