DLA-PIP decision letter

DLA-PIP decision letter was created by wilk
Have today received my husbands award which is enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility till 2029 (11years). Am so relieved - has been a very stressful and time consuming process since receiving the original letter in June. I feel like i totally missed out on the summer because i was stuck indoors covered in paper going through each question very very carefully making sure i answered in a clear,precise and detailed way answering the descriptors and giving examples when possible. I answered each question on a separate piece of paper (typed in word and printed off) and then attached it on each question page. But definately couldn't have done it without the help of the guides and advice from this site. Absolutely invaluable. Cant thank you all enough for your detailed guides and for answering questions so promptly.
The process didn't take as long as I was expecting. Sent the form off mid august and got decision today 22nd sept. But that was without a face to face. Some advice I would give is as soon as you get a letter to say you're going to be transferred then download a sample copy of the pip2 form and start goimg through it. Gives you a bit more time as it took 10days for my form to arrive which cuts into your 4 weeks allowed to fill it in and get it back. I did also need a 2 week extention.
My husband isn't currently seeing a consultant so we went to see the gp to ask for a supporting letter and asked if he could include information about how his condition affects him that was relevant to the descriptors. Luckily our gp was very helpful. I also sent old consultants reports going back to 2010 & 2013 as these confirmed some of the things I had written on the form. And a letter from a family member.
The decision maker used the exact same scoring as the hp report so requesting a copy of the hp report is definately helpful in knowing in advance what you're likely to get.
