PIP Assessments

When I completed my wife's PIP form I requested a home visit & provided reasons why.

My wife is being assessed at home but someone else has told me that all PIP assessments are being done at home.

Is this correct because if so then why does the form ask if a home visit is required.

I think it varies. Mine was done at home but when i watched the information dvd they sent about pip it said some were done at a centre. I suppose it all accords where you live. I know mine was done very quickly but i had to wait nearly 10 months before i knew whether i had got it.

Hello Jade,

Thanks for the info.

My wife already gets DLA on a full assessment made by a doctor 18 months ago so it'll be interesting to see what assessment a computer keyboard pushing "health professional" arrives at.
