PIP f2f Questions 4 weeks 5 minutes ago #221292

Hi Jay.
If you get asked a closed question at your f2f and it applies to you answer with “No” then justify why. I put in my Pip that I couldn’t read and take in the information due to fibrofog. I was asked at my f2f “can you read?” I answered “yes, but due to fibrofog cannot understand what I have read”. When I got a copy of the decision makers report it stated I had answered “yes I can read”, therefore this component does not apply. Everything I had written in my PIP claim was ignored. In hindsight I should have answered “ No, I cannot read and take in any of what is on the page due to fibrofog and fatigue”.
I thought the assessor was just making small talk when she asked if I had watched Coronation Street last night.They assume if you have that you can sit for long periods. I have trouble sitting for more than a few minutes which is what she was asking me this for. I pointed out that if I do watch tv I have to lie down as cannot sit due to pain the majority of the time. Good luck with your f2f.

Just be aware the list provided here is not definitive (nor could it be). As mememe says they can suddenly ask you something quite personal which you are not expecting. I was asked what was the title of my last job and how senior it was! Knew this was being used to try and contradict my evidence saying I become confused.
