    In my experience its usually 2-3 months before.

    There is a chance you will get deffered as that seems to still be happening for some people, I dont know the criteria for deferrals sorry.

    supposedly this has now been reduced to 6 months according to poppy on the scope forums, she seems to know an aweful lot about internal DWP processes so is probably correct. But given pip assessment...

    I dont quite agree with this.

    They can offer an informed opinion based on their own observations, reports from other HCP's and reports from carers.

    I am not necessarily disagreeing with the...

    There is two possibilities, either they think you intentionally spent the money to get more benefit. Or not disregarded the backdated payment, I agree with nukecad, do a MR.

    no idea, I dont really hear much of pip assessments been significantly shortened.

    What you can do is request a copy of the report, most of the time a DM will follow the recommendation of the HCP,...

    Yeah my comment assumed if old style ESA.

    I never disagreed with the advice of getting a UC claim in, as obviously the ESA at this point has already been stopped, the question was more about what...

    No, I think the fact it was cut short is a good thing, just I am not at 100% confidence rating.

    I think its more likely than not you will get a recommendation for ESA. But it might be WRAG, and I...

    an hour is a bit lengthy, but usually a examination cut short is an indication that they consider you to meet the criteria. If it was cut short at say 5 minutes I would be much more confident, so...

    My thinking is, and I havent fully read nukecad's reply.

    That this is "not" a change of circumstances and as such it should be a ESA3, followed by a switch to IR ESA, akin to people filling in...

    Coop energy looks like its going to be painful to deal with again.

    The scheme is still not opened, and they have finally posted a reason explaining why but no date.

    Pensioners are a different kettle of fish to working age benefit claimants tho in politics, the tories have long been a pensioner party. I cannot see a 3.9% rise in benefits. A best case is the...

    Above the rate of inflation? probably no.

    Although UC already did provide the biggest boost for decades for some people.

    A normal paper assessment would still provide a decision letter so you would know unless the letter got lost.

    But a deferral the claimant isnt told.

    I think there is cherry picking going on,...

    I got mine within a week (if I remember right was 2 working days as it included a weekend). Someone else close time to me also got hers very quickly as well. But my form was filled in over the...

    Agree with nukecad, the fact you not got the form, and have a home appointment suggests there is already "some" recognition of your problems.

    nothing more annoying than a HCP thinking you not in pain, that applies whether they work in a hospital or for a DWP AP.

    Judging someone based on the painkillers they have access to is ridiculous.

    probably not, even if ESA is stopped notice would be given and would be some time before cease of payments unless it was an immediate effect for fraud reasons. I would be surprised if a decision of...

    postcode lottery, I usually get a 1-2 week wait after ESA50 (quite quick).

    But for some reason once they aware I want it recorded it slows then right down and I then have to often wait months.

    I meant my protected HB been lowered to LHA rates if I moved to UC. The increase of LCWRA (before I got SDP) would have countered that. Its very easy to forget about the few of us on transitional...

    I dont know who said that, I said on scope a few times there is an element of anti fraud in F2F assessments, but its far from a criminal interrogation.

    I think they have procedures...

    There should be no recognition of an IB award on ESA tho right? max is 3 years and the WCA is different to a PCA. So really it should only be paper based if the evidence is there to allow it.
