Change in PIP assessment forms

mitzymoomitzymoo Posts: 14Member Whisperer
Hi. I have received my assessment form back from DWP as I requested. 
Does anyone know if they have been changed recently as there are no dots or ticks for me to get an idea of anything that may be awarded to me.
Thanks for reading.

    Are you sure? They used to be at the end of the report.

    Mind you nothing surprises me in what the DWP do - maybe they are not wanting the claimants to get advance notice of the points awarded by the assessor should the DWP case manager decides to change them as they are too lenient.

    Hi Yadnad. Yes I’m sure.
    They sent me 2 copies of the assessment.

    More members please report, send in details if your report doesn’t give an idea or indication of what your award might be. It will help us who give advise.

    Is this for PIP or ESA? if it's ESA then there won't be dots or ticks in boxes.

    If it's PIP then the assessment reports haven't changed, they're the same as they always have been. At the back of the report there's boxes with dots or ticks for recommendations of the PIP descriptors.

    It’s for PIP.
    no boxes with ticks or dots.

    There has to be recommendations for the descriptors somewhere in the report, they haven't changed at all.

    Perhaps they forgot to put them in.

    Or that the DWP are no longer sending that bit of the report out?

    Have you already been told your award? if not then it may be they don't want you to learn it from the report.

    @mitzymoo Not to put a downer on it here? If this is your first application for PIP they can turn you down without having a FTF also.

    So It also may be a case of without adding anything to the report it maybe their way of turning you down.

    Again what has already been mentioned maybe the DWP don't want people to No?

    I really do think your going to have to wait it out for a final decision.


    URGENT response,
    To all Scope members the Mirror newspaper needs yours and our help NOW

    Stop the migration and rollout of Universal Credit and replace it with a fairer system
    _____________________________
    We must act NOW before it's to late and many more will suffer
    Universal Credit is harsher on people both in and out of work, and some families could end up £200 a month worse off.
    The Mirror are demanding a halt to the expansion of UC and for a review to take place. We say there are three options:
    • Redesign UC to be fit for purpose
    • Axe it in favour of the old system if UC is unfixable
    • Introduce a brand new system
    Sign our petition to stop the rollout of Universal Credit across Britain and to replace it with a fairer system.
    Please Sign the Mirror's petition in the link below

    Yes I have had face 2 face and not been told the outcome yet.

    This is the PA4 report, it hasn't changed. Does yours look like this? As you can see at the end of the report there's boxes where the dots/ticks should be placed. If it's not in your report then DWP haven't sent you the whole report, ring them back and ask them to send you the full report.

    I got my report this morning for my pip F2F and the boxes with dots in for the discriptors were at the back.
  • mitzymoomitzymoo Posts: 14Member Whisperer
    My form is the same as the link but no pages with boxes in for dots.
    have received 20 pages so guessing they have not sent them.
    They have sent me 3 copies all missing these pages.

    Seems like they have taken those pages out of the report. I have to admit, i've never heard of them doing this before. If it was me i'd be ringing DWP first thing Monday morning to ask why they've been removed.
  • mitzymoomitzymoo Posts: 14Member Whisperer
    Yes thank you I will.
  • mitzymoomitzymoo Posts: 14Member Whisperer
    I have called the DWP and was told I have received all paperwork. Nothing missing.
