TOPIC: PIP result at last!

PIP result at last! 1 month 1 week ago #220810

Well after almost 6 months I finally got a decision today if only over the phone. A letter was posted to me on the 1st of November so should be with me tomorrow possibly.

I won my my MR!!!

I'm still in shock and have been all day so only just stopped shaking, well almost.

The girl on the phone said 12 points for mobilty and 9 points for daily living up to the 20th of June 2021. So that's that for over 18 months until I get the call again a year before the end date, all being well.

I won't be totally convinced until I get the letter, though.

My sincere thanks and gratitude goes to you, Gordon - for your support and advice throughout this ordeal. My eternal thanks also to the support I've had from fellow members.

I really could never have got there on my own. I thoroughly read the guides and followed them intently throughout the whole process and in particular through the MR process, which obviously paid off.

My advice to anyone who is in a similar situation after a dodgy assessment is make sure you have a recording to refer to and quote from (even though the other tape is highly unlikely to ever get listened to), and do not give up, whatever you do.

Anyway, cheers to all and for once I'm looking forward to getting my brown envelope this time.

Phrank.

Really pleased for you, well done.

Yes, you will need to wait for the Decision Letter but the call centre operator will be in a world of trouble if they told you the wrong information.

Just to add to the other post, from zero points to 21. Just what is going on?

It really isn't right, that's for sure.

Thanks, Gordon,

Well, yes I will have to wait for the letter.

She said award is up to the 20th of June 2021. So my assessment was on the 21st of June this year. So does that make it a sort of 'belated' 3 year award?

It's certainly more than two years which is the important thing as it means a reassessment rather than a renewal.

Thanksvagain Gordon,

Sorry if I sound silly.

But she said the award is until June 2021 meaning I'll get called in about 20 months so will it still be a reassessment
rather than a renewal even though it will be less than two years from now?

Forgive me panicking.
