TOPIC: Pip2 home assessment date received

Pip2 home assessment date received 1 week 3 hours ago #213918

Like most people I am extremely anxious about my home assessment in just under 2 weeks. I don't know where to start. I didn't have to ask for the home visit luckily they just granted me one so at least I don't have to fight to get that.
I am a natural worrier and I really don't know how I will get through it and jut feel they will fail me or lower my award. I'm scared of them lying about me or forgetting things in the assessment. I'm scared I wont cope well if the assessment is long.
Also what if I am too ill that day and have to be in bed would they have to re schedule as this happens a lot.
My GP has also referred me for a wheelchair since I filled in the form, does this matter or not? I haven't got it yet its still in the process but do I have to mention this?
Also will my assessor have read my whole Pip2 form and extra information I sent in or will they just rely on the face2face? I feel was it really worth filling in the form if it doesn't get read

I know you will read on this forum that a lot of member are having problems with their assessments but the posting on here represent a very small proportion of the actual number of assessments that are actually carried out and in the majority of cases the assessment is done professionally and the claimant receives the award that they deserve.

If you are ill on the day, then this would not be a reason for the assessor to re-schedule, your being ill is a part of your conditions and impacts on your ability to complete the PIP activities so it is perfectly valid for you to be assessed in this situation.

Yes, I would mention the wheelchair referral.

Yes, the assessor should have read your form and anything attached to it.

Best of luck and try not worry too much :)
