Not heard back from PIP

I have not heard back. I swear its been almost 8 weeks. They say they havent decided yet if I should be interviewed or not when I called… its taking unusually a long time not sure if thats good or bad…

I applied in may 2019 and did not get a decision until September

Got a lot of back pay

That was also pre-covid-19

I had to wait 3 months. But it goes from the date of your claim, so your not losing out.

Im sure you will be fine, and get a fat amount in your account!

Seriously - they take ages.

I had my PIP assessment come back relatively quickly, within 3 months with no assessment. Also good result. This is before covid though.

I’m gonna be unlucky though but this is taking longer to be unlucky than usual.

Sounds like it could be a good thing.

I would be surprised if they interview during covid. Maybe they’ll call you though instead.

I know they are only doing telephone assesments cos they told me in jan.

You might be alright. Ill cross my fingers for you.

On my questions i basically just said i stay indoors, and that was it. I think they just worked off the sz diagnosis letter.

We all deserve it.

I know @SethTheNew but this is the forth time applied. This time is just different perhaps cos of Covid… I believe it will be a telephone assessment…

I received my SSD three months after I first applied. My son’s case was the same way. My diagnosis was sza. My son’s diagnosis was p.sz.
