DLA -PIP AWARD 1 year 7 months ago #247016

Received the brown envelope today after 10 months Enhanced Enhanced for an ongoing period, so happy it's over at last. Thank you for all the support from this group its really helped having the guides to look at and the experiences of others to look at. I also had help from a local disability association. For others going through this process the timeline was-
invitation to change to PIP July2019
returned form September 2019
received text saying had all the information needed January 23rd 2020
received decision letter today 14th April 2020
will get first payment end of May.

Don't lose hope everyone they are obviously still making decisions on benefit but patience is a virtue.
Again thank you to this site and the moderators who run it

I'm pleased you got your award. I've just received a letter this morning saying "We now have all the information we need to make a decision" This is DLA-PIP transfer. I received the letter to change in December, I was asked to phone them, then received the forms which I had to submit in January although the gave a 2 week extension without me asking. I haven't been asked to go for a medical. So it's been 3 months so far since submitting my forms. On your timeline this would mean a possible wait of another 3 months to get a decision. I wonder if getting this letter means they have enough information without having to attend a face to face medical? I do hope so as I suffer from Schizophrenia and PTSD and find face to face meetings very difficult.

Hi TrevorR

That letter does mean you won't have to have an assessment at all. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for the decision.
