I havent been on here for a while, hope everone is doing well.
I just want to find out about peoples experience of applying for PIP. I posted thIs question on here about 4 years ago but i cant open the thread again.
I applied for PIP sept last year and had a phone asseasmenton monday just gone. Call lasted 1 hour 50 the lady went right into the thick of things, very embarasing at times.
How long did people wait after the assessment. I have heard people get a text from the DWP to confirm they had my report, i havent heard a thing.
A mistake i may have made was i never sent any medical evidence away with the application and i never told my GP or rheumatology clinic that they may recieve a letter from. I did send a letter that i got from a Dr my employer referred me to and one i got from NASS. I just dont like asking for letter from Drs as when i call some of the reseptionists can be quite rude, so i tend to only call when it is urgent ie meds i need.
I have thought about reducing my work hours for the last 4 years or so but i had this choice was taken away and was forced to.
It came to this after 1 and 1/2 years of what i call intermittant suffering, i never knew what i was wakening up to.
Thanks for reading my whinge
