DWP decission

dazman14dazman14 Posts: 10Member Connected
So I got off the phone from the pip helpline they said that a decission has been made but they cant tell me what  because it's still being updated. 

Is this likely? Because I'd of thought it would of told them the lot if they knew the decission had been made.

Wanted peoples opinion and if they have heard this before.  Also the lack of me receiving any calls from the deccisoon maker who told me she would make a deccisoon the second she gets my report as it was late and she was annoyed at that etc.

I am just sat wondering and worrying my butt off =/

    Hello @dazman14. Unfortunately due to backlog, it takes time for claims to be processed. All I can suggest is to keep calling. Do remember to ask for a copy of their report as well. Good luck! Keep us updated.

    Yes, this is normal. It takes about 24 hours for the computer to be updated and for the information to transfer from one to another. They can see that a decision's been made but they can't tell you what it is at that point. Ring back tomorrow afternoon and they'll be able to tell you what that decision is. Frustrating i know but it's happened to me but for me it was a Friday so i had to wait until the Monday.  :o Good luck.

    Found out the deccisoon over the phone it was disallowed.

    The report pretty much mentions all my problems and is quite accurate other than the fact they written what I said and failed to put it towards any descriptors absolutely nothing was awarded on the report. 

    Even though for example:

    I dont use public transport
    I Leave my cooker on and have burnt things many times
    My mum supports me by cooking and preparing food
    And it says I overspend and what not

    There is way toomuch information to say what I do struggle with but it's like they took what I said and left a simple statement about my cognition and intellect etc saying it's likely I dont get anything on any descriptor. 

    Very peeved off to say the least because I'm halfway through an mental health assesment and they reported no further evidence but say that just because on the day I was okay to them it was enough.  And honestly I am that bad they are considering a psychosis refferal in community care. I just dont get it. 

    Such an unfair system for people who suffer and I've recently had alot of issues with attempts and yet I am not sick enough or disabled enough for their help. I used to use the money on taxis and getting support with shopping etc. And it clearly shows I only leave 2-3 times a week but with someone and how I tend to walk into the road due to distraction' paranoia and my behaviour ... 

    What happened to the safetly' reliable and whatever guidance. What complete ****...

    And to say the assesor said people like me are supported soomuch more and it's good I've got my mum around as she was concerned ... they have no hearts. Or failed to move their ticks to the next box

    Sorry to hear that @dazman14,  are you going to apply for mandatory reconsideration?  There should be details of how to do it in your assessment results letter when you get it.  I managed to get through after this a couple of years ago.  Good luck!

    @linlin01 I am going to apply for MR and also lodge a complaint to capita about the contradictory report and lodge a complaint to the DWP for missing this because clearly it shows my needs in terms of her observations other than the fact it also said because I can do x y and z in her eyes I can do it all... which isnt righr or fair.
