Thread: Pip assessments at home despite not requesting one

    Pip assessments at home despite not requesting one

    Hi, has anyone else experienced this? I personally haven’t but two of my friends both have had appointments for assessments to be carried out in their homes despite not requesting a home visit.

    One is happening this Sunday (on a bank holiday weekend)!

    Is this a case of high workload and not enough assessment centre capacity or just a good excuse for a more thorough snoop?

    Capita seem to prefer doing home assessments for PIP, Atos prefer you to go to a centre.

    I think it's to do with their respective employment contracts?
    Working from home rather than paying for lots of office space?
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    I had a home assessment without requesting one done by ATOS.
    The only thing that I can think of that instigated it was that I need a lift and can't get down the stairs in an emergency (which I stated on the form) and that their assessment centre couldn't meet my needs.

    Would this mean that you would be able to use the state of your home to your advantage?

    e.g. untidy garden, rooms need a damn good tidy, needs decorating, etc

    I doubt it - plenty of fit healthy people have untidy homes and gardens.
