Anyone had PIP home assessment?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone any experiences of a PIP home assessment and especially how long does it take to get one? Do you have to ask your doctor to write a letter for you to the DWP, stating why you need one? Does it take longer to get one than a normal appointment when they ask you to come into their offices?

My last review was at home, I didn't notice it taking any longer in 1/ waiting time and 2/ the length of the interview.

Mine was arranged by "Manor & Castle" advice/help centre" so I'm not sure how it was done, one thing for sure is you need someone with a title or company behind you,

though a Doctors letter may do it (he/she is titled)

It's sad to say, but I believe when individuals apply it gets knocked back just for the fun of it (and to see if you really need/want it enough to re-apply/appeal) but with a name behind you their more likely to take an intrest.

My brother's home visit lasted 2 hours, despite being told it would be about 40 mins . They even looked through his bookcase  no doubt thinking if he read intelligent books he was not disabled. He was turned down and we helped him put in an appeal... that was 10 months ago  and he's still waiting. it's criminal.
