The PIP is new and have not come accross many that have applied as of yet so information is limited at the moment but i would suggest it possibly means that you will be needed to attend a medical.

This seems to be standered proceedure which they have introduced especially for new claims from those that have never received DLA

Hi Dolphintara, I'd phone them again and ask for a clear explanation but I'd perhaps if you are able to, book an appointment to see a CAB(citizens advise bureau) advisor, ask them to phone on your behalf as they will have the training to ask the right questions and they should be able to give you some assistance with the process as well perhaps(depending on the area you live in and the staff available, my DLA APPEAL was attended by a staff member from my local CAB) Best of luck and hope all goes well, post and let everyone know as others may come across the same thing.

:-D :roll:

Hi all, we are in Blackpool and my partner recently applied for PIP ,,he was told he had to attend a face to face assessment in Preston, he rang and told them he could not attend, he is on crutches and neither of us drive, we asked for a home visit and were told he wasn't entitled, makes me worry for when my DLA changes to PIP, :crazy:

I recently applied for PIP. Last week I had to go for a face to face assessment. He basically asked me the same questions as what was on the form. Just said he would write a report and I would here within 8 weeks. Hope this helps
