TOPIC: PIP award

PIP award 3 years 1 week ago #117167

We have just received out first decision on a PIP application. Awarded enhanced for daily living and mobility, backdated to date of application.
All down to your guide so many thanks.
However, it is almost 7 months from application to decision. Is this a record??

Hi c,

That is good news, enhanced for both components as well !!!

Thanks for the feedback, it's much appreciated.

I don't know whether 7 months is a record, but it is most certainly unacceptable.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Hi there, sorry to say its not a record, we applied in July and only went for an assessment last week and have to wait another 8 to 10 weeks for the decision.
Congratulations on getting your award :laugh: Best wishes Louise xxx
