PIP: initial claim by post update 1 month 5 days ago #251232

The assessor asked her if she can take money from the cashpoint but didn't ask what she did with it. Thanks. Yes, I meant unsuccessful.

Hi Irisheyes

I think if they didn't ask - then an assumption has been made.

PIP: initial claim by post update 3 weeks 2 days ago #251635

BIS as you advised my daughter wrote to the DWP to nominate me as her appointee. Actually I wrote the letter, posted it first class to her and included an SAE with First Class stamp so that she could ask someone to post it to the DWP. I phoned them today. They had received the letter but it didn;t count. A form had to be filled in. I thought she would have to fill it in but they completed it with me over the phone.
The assessor's report which was sent to her was posted to me nine days ago by first class mail. It hasn't arrived. I have now asked for another copy to be sent to me. I also asked for extra time but my wish to go through the mandatory reconsideration process was registered as being started today and I now have another month to send in a response to the assessor's report. From the summary given in the letter sent to my daughter telling her that her claim had not been successful I know that either parts of what the assessor wrote were incorrect or what the decision maker has concluded, based on that report, is inaccurate.
