TOPIC: Still waiting. DLA to PIP

Still waiting. DLA to PIP 2 months 1 week ago #226131

This original process began in November 2018 . The DWP have had my form from Capita for over a month just and had a thin brown envelope saying they have everything they need 10 days ago. Seems a very long and stressful process. I was originally told that it would be less than 3 weeks!

As I have previously said, you are probably looking at a wait of 10 weeks or more.

I was hoping they would employ extra staff! :(

They have had to redeploy large numbers of staff to review previous claims because or a series of bad and often illegal changes to PIP that they made.

Hi Kirsty, I received my my thin brown envelope 9th February and I got my result this morning
14th February. My process started in November 2018 as well. It was also with Capita, hopefully you won’t have much longer to wait.

Thank you for responding. I got my envelope on 8th Feb ...dated 31st Jan inside. It is nerve wracking waiting. I hope your result was good. Will keep my fingers crossed.
