    Hi Jackie.

    I just wanted to welcome you to the forum. I've got RA (and OA) but I'm now of an age where the change to PIP won't affect me. I hope someone with more knowledge will come along soon but, in the meantime, is this of use? (It doesn't mention a phone call though.)
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    hi Jackie,

    I just got my award through... :D

    I applied jan 14 :shock: atos backlogs!

    As i remember it they just asked very general questions such as what was your condition (in a few words) just to check you weren't ringing up without being eligible with something temporary like a broken leg or didn't require the fast track service because you were likely to die within 6 months.

    its a very quick straightforward phone call so don't stress it.
