pip question and pension question 1 month 1 week ago #252236

Hi Gordon, sorry for the encyclopedia of words, this was mostly the wife, so when we reply we can look at the copy of the form we received so we can explain it in a little more but accurate detail, the person we spoke with was sometimes difficult to understand, but my wife fully agrees with you and thank you for this quick reply.

Yes, it is always helpful to refer back to your original form and paperwork, do this in your letter as well, for example;

"the assessor does not seem to have taken on board the information I supplied in reply to question X and the medical evidence I supplied in support of this, see page Y of the information attached to my form."

Just a quick question, i,ve had my pip phone call assessment, i,ve got another letter from the doctor to further explain my conditions, if this was photo copied would the dm read it?. Much appreciated Logan.

You have nothing to lose by sending it in but bear in mind that the DM is not medically trained and may not be able to apply this new letter to the PIP Descriptors so it would be worth including a covering letter explaining its relevance.
