Sent my Wife's PIP forms off about 5 weeks ago.


It comprises the form,

12 typed pages of extra information.

6 pages of assessment by consultants, pain management clinics etc.

Lastly three pages of photographs of various adaptations to the house.

I scanned all documents.


I have just received an appointment for a home assessment which we never asked for.

Should I be worried?

Any advice welcome.

Take notes.


They observe everything you do. Also, if you say you use Facebook, they will assume you have no difficult socialising - completely ignoring the difficulties some of us have with face to face interaction.

A relative of mine had a home assessment a few months back.

First of all the assessor turned up early which through her off balance as it were,

she was frightened to ask the assessor to come back later as she though it would count against her.

The complete assessment took just 20 minutes


when she got her copy of the assessment it was so full of errors,

it continually stated she had a mobile phone that she used to phone and text friends even though she has never owned a mobile.


Every answer to questions stated that informal observations suggested she was able to perform various tasks.

Needless to say my relative is taking it all to the tribunal court and has also lodged a formal complaint with Capita who carried out the assessment but all they have said is that all their assessors are professionals and trained how to conduct interviews. Haha.



Be very careful what you say to them and only answer the question asked;

do not offer anything extra.

Have a friend or relative with you if possible as a witness.
