Hi Misterzero

It must mean that they have decided to do a paper-based assessment rather than call you for a face to face assessment. Only 3% of PiP assessments are paper-based so I think many people would consider you have been very fortunate. There is nothing sinister in this, they must think from the evidence provided they have no need to see you.

Thanks for replying and putting my mind at ease somewhat .i thought it meant that my application wasn't worth an interview and I was being turned down .hopefully good news then
