TOPIC: Confusing F2F

Confusing F2F 10 months 4 weeks ago #204235


Had a confusing F2F at my home yesterday for PIP.

Very pleasant and polite lady.

After spending a lot of time on I/D and confirming home details she started
asking questions most of which showed that she had just not read my
PIP2 form.
After about half an hour she got up and started to leave. No attempt to
give me any physical tests at all, I was completely seated throughout.
No attempt to go in or view my kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. As
I have a lot of bespoke and rare adaptations I was amazed.
Had a list of things to raise but just kept saying she had all the information
she needed. Did not even get her surname or profession.
Is this worrying?
Should I get a copy of her report at the juncture or wait for
the result?
Why would they go to the trouble of coming to a home
visit to not even touch me or see the things I was
trying to show them?

Feed back from several of our members who have had a PIP Home Assessment indicates that the Assessors do not ask to look around your home, and stay in the room that you choose to have the assessment in.

Of course, you may wish to show the assessor your kitchen/bathroom so that they see any aids or adaptations that you have to use, but this would have been down to you to show them.

The assessment is not a medical one, so you would not be examined as such but the assessor will have observed your movements etc whilst carrying out the assessment

Presumably when the Assessor arrived at your home he/she showed you some form of identification confirming she was the PIP assessor.

You can certainly request a copy of the report, although you may wish to wait until you receive a decision.
