When will I get a decision on my claim for PIP?

You will not receive a formal indication at the face-to-face assessment of whether you will be awarded PIP. After having had your assessment, the healthcare professional will complete their report.

Once they have done this, they will send it to a DWP case manager who will decide whether or not to award you PIP and, if it is awarded, at what rate and for how long.

We have produced a factsheet on PIP that contains lots of useful information and more details about how to make an effective claim for it:
