They texted me saying it can take up to 4 weeks for them to inform me of a decision.
I requested the assessors report from 22 June and they said they will send it last Wednesday.I might get it tomorrow or Tuesday,some time this coming week anyway.The report will give me some idea if I will get an award or not.

I got the assessor's report for the June 22 assessment.I scored 11 points for daily care which is standard rate PIP,I am only 1 point short for enhanced rate.I scored 4 points for mobility which is a big fat zero money wise.It is wrong cos my mobility is bad.My legal team advises me to write to the assessment company and the DWP raising my concerns before the DWP send me their decision,they say they often correct the decisions when they receive such letters.So I am off to the internet cafe on thursday to type up my objections and sent the letters off.Wish me luck.Thank you all for your support especially when you have so much going on yourselves,that is you Deejay,love and hugs!

I did the letter at the internet cafe.I corrected the factual errors in the second assessment report and challenged them for awarding me the incorrect number of points on activities where I should have scored more.I also complained cos they are saying I can walk further than I can.I told them I should get enhanced rates for both mobility and care.They should get the letter tomorrow.I hope that they will consider what it says before deciding what to award me for PIP.I am glad that I got that done.I hope to God I get a just and fair award now.I was one point short of enhanced for daily care so I should get enhanced for that really and for mobility.Fingers crossed.Just got to wait for a decision now.It cost me 13 to send both letters one to the benefits people and one to the assessment company special delivery today.

I hope that you will be able to get blood out of this stone. Surely your doctor and specialists medical records can confirm your claim. Fingers still crossed that this will get resolved sooner rather than later.

No news yet.I phone the benefits people today,they say it won't be long until I get a decision,they received my letter about the latest assessor's report and what I thought wrong with it and they got a GP's report which I think they themselves requested.They are considering all the evidence but have not made a decision yet!I should get a letter shortly they said.
