    Hi jheart

    I think they may have meant that your claim is with the DM and no decision has been made for PIP yet ? or am I mis-understanding your question ?

    If you applied recently it will have been for PIP not DLA.

    I applied for DLA about 10 years ago now but from what I remember a doctor visited me at home (dont know if they still do this) and I was refused DLA mobility and care, but I appealed and got high rate mobility. I applied a few months later for care and got high rate without even seeing anyone. I guess it is possible for them to deny you any PIP without a medical but thats when you need to appeal.

    I hope I have understood your question
