had my pip appeal today 2.50 and came out the room at 4.15 it felt i was in court and i had committed a crime back and fourth between 3 panel peoples they did not  seem be worried about my physical disabilities as they said we do not need to question them as we have enough medical evidence so they are fine but on my mental heath it felt they were putting on me i ended up in tears the doctor said we dont mean to upset you but we need to know how everyday effects you all i can say is the person before me got called back in with their answer after they grilled me for over a hr i was told thats it .we write to you n post thank you for your time im just glad its all over to be honest  so ow i still wait for outcome

    Lots of people don't receive the decision on the day of their hearing but it doesn't mean a decision hasn't gone in their favour, it just means a decision couldn't be made today. They usually write to you within a couple of days so hopefully you'll receive the decision letter on Friday, Saturday at the latest.

    Good luck and please let us know the outcome.

    I’m sorry it was such a bad experience for you @misstracey. To echo Poppy, not receiving the answer on the day isn’t necessarily a negative. I hope you hear quickly.
