How much notice is taken of assessors report? 1 month 2 weeks ago #249985

I had my assessment last week and received my report. It reads nothing like the true assessment and the difficulties I have daily. . Nor does it represent my PIP claim form.or evidence, in fact it is the complete opposite in some areas and details of questions and responses I was never even asked.
My husband was with me and recorded on his phone.
.How much notice will DWP take of the report and do I need to inform them how it is? Many thanks

Hi Debbe

When you say you received a copy of the assessors report is it PA4 v3 report?

There is a small window for you to write to the Decision Maker but you will need to be quick.

Understand that the assessor is offering an opinion when they say that you can do the PIP activities, tackling these head-on is unlikely to be successful, you need to show that the basis of that opinion is founded on incorrect information, so try and refer to your evidence to undermine what they have said.

Also, try and stick to issues that lead to your scoring points, I often hear members referring to the assessors spelling, as an example, whilst it may show a lack of professionalism, raising it as an issue isn't going to help you get an award.

Make sure that you understand the criteria that you are being assessed against you can put the best case forward that is possible but you won't score points if you do not meet the PIP Descriptors.

Lastly, make sure that your letter makes it clear that you are not requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration but you reserve the right to do so once a Decision has been made.

When you have a better idea of the issues with your claim, come back to the forum and we will do our best to help.
