Pip review timescale

JackswanJackswan Member Posts: 18 Listener
Hello again to everyone hope you are having a good sunny day 👍. I received my pip review form and sent it off in time as I had an extension for two extra week's. I was just wondering how long it will take for them to get back to me offering telephone assessment which I'm not looking forward to.. But I know its gonna happen. I would be grateful for your help if anyone knows thank you.

    Hi Jack Unfortunately there are no set timescales all depends on the backlog and the area you are in and the availability of the assessors.

    Assessments f2f are still suspended so it will be a phone assessment

    Try not to stress nothing you can do at this stage

    Most people are having phone assessments, paper based assessments are still rare. It's perfectly normal to feel anxious during times of reviews but please don't increase your meds without first speaking to your GP.

    Hopefully you're not waiting too long but try thinking of something else in the meantime although i know how difficult that is.
