TOPIC: Pip reveiw

Pip reveiw 5 months 2 weeks ago #223794

Hi all,
What does the DM have apart from the review form?
Can I send copies of my assessment report which was actually very good and accurate with no discrepancies.

Thanks Dave.

The DM will already have a copy of the report, that's why you were asked to attend the assessment in the first place :)

Hi Gordon,

sorry, what I should have said was that I had a F2F in Oct 2017 For the shift from DLA to PIP, I was awarded Enhanced rate for both in Nov 2017 for 2 years and now have the expected review after 1 year. I’m about to send the form back (new style 1043 I think). If it goes straight to a DM at the DWP first, what info will he/she have to go on apart from my returned pip review form.

Reassessments are done using the claimants original PIP2 and the information that they have supplied as new as part of the review.

It is actually quite rare for the DM to take any action at this point in the process the overwhelming majority of forms are passed straight to the relevant Assessment Provider.

Hi Gordon

Ahhhh right I see and they (ATOS as it was) will obviously have the original assessors F2F report which they probably won’t even look at and send me a date for another F2F. It’s a shame because it was an honest detailed report. It even said that she didn’t think there would be any changes at review time.

Hi,
Annoyingly I have my pip review F2F tomorrow morning. I use wrist splints for my arthritis but not everyday, if I needed to put them on tomorrow (if I genuinely don’t need them tomorrow I won’t put them on) would it go against me at the asessment as using an aid?

Thanks
Dave
