I had my assessment in November and got a letter 2 weeks later awarding me enhanced care and mobility, no home visit just a trip to Preston to an Atos assessment. I was shocked to hear so quick but when you tell the truth you have nothing to worry about... Good luck to everyone that's going from DLA to PIP... Honesty is the best policy remember that x

Hi i too have had to re apply as transferred from DLA to pip same dates as you but sent forms back end Sept got phonecall within the same week to attend assessment following week was granted a few weeks later. I had to go to cab for help with mine as had so much trouble before assessed by capita but only got pip until 2018 then have to re apply causes so much stress its unbelievable. I used to get paid weekly but now they will only pay every four weeks
