TOPIC: PIP Assessment 4 November 2019

PIP Assessment 4 November 2019 1 month 4 days ago #238873

Hi ya,
I received my date of assessment via text yesterday 14/10 they did ring me the friday before to ask if I could come for an assessment the next day which was a saturday! I said NO as I needed my support worker to come with me. The question I want to ask, I never got my partner to write a supporting lettter and I'm going to ask my GP to write a letter as they haven't contacted my GP. Can I take these letters to the assessment with me or do I need to send this to the DWP before my assessment?

Many thanks
Simon

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?



Yes, yuc can take copies to the assessment, ask the assessor to read them and include them in your file when they return it to the DWP.

I would also send a copy to the DWP office dealing with your claim with a covering letter explaining what they are, don't forget to include your full name and National Insurance Number.
