My first time applying for pip ,I got turned down. So August this year I applied again. My assessment ,I thought, was terrible. It was so bad, days later, I complained. The assessor was, well, like a robot. On entering the room, I was told to sit in the "red or green chair"! I might be a little paranoid, but I felt it was like a test. She had no expression on her face, she was cold. I felt uncomfortable. I was in a state on arriving has again, I felt I was being tested. Myself and my daughter arrived at the wrong building, on finding the correct place, just in time, the assessor again, "asked me if I found them ok", again, this felt like another test. I was threaten to have the assessment stop because I "accidentally swore"! By swearing, I mean in explaining my terrible state, I did not swear at her. So yesterday, I decided to call up the dwp to see how my claim is getting along. I was 100% convinced this woman was going all out to make me feel bad and I have requested further evidence from my doctor so I can appeal. But guess what, They've awarded me standard on both categories. My letters in the post. I have no mobility problems so I cant understand how they awarded me that element. I was asked in the assessment if I had mobility issues and I said no. Unless it was to do with my state xx

These assessments are dreadful, in the past I have always gone on my own, but now I have had such bad experiences & I am so wary of them & have absolute zero trust in them that I will never ever go alone again.

Well done, you can get the mobility component for reasons such as you need someone with you when you go out.
