PIP Decision Waiting Time – How long will I have to wait for a PIP decision?
PIP is an important benefit for people who require additional care or mobility due to a handicap. How long will I have to wait for a decision on PIP?
The non-taxable benefit PIP is available across the UK and is not means-tested, however you must undergo a medical examination to be considered for the benefit. But, once you’ve submitted your application, how long does it take to acquire a verdict on Personal Independence Payment?
PIP is divided into two parts, and you may be eligible for one or both:
The daily life component provides further assistance with daily duties such as meal preparation, cleaning, dressing, and speaking with others.
The mobility rate is in place to help you get about.
The daily living component of PIP is either £60.00 or £89.60 per week.
PIP’s mobility component has a weekly cost of £23.70 or £62.55.
The DWP takes an average of 12 weeks to make a decision after you submit your application.
However, this can vary; some may take longer, while others may take less time.
The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) will send you a letter advising you of their decision.
The letter will state if you have been approved for PIP benefits, how much you are entitled for, which components you are eligible for, and how many points you received on the test.
You should save this letter in case you need to appeal your decision or apply for further benefits.
You have the right to appeal a decision made by the DWP if you disagree with it.
You have one month from the date the DWP made the decision to appeal it.
If you have a legitimate justification for contesting the decision late, you can only do so after one month.
If you want to appeal a decision, you must contact the DWP directly; information on how to do so will be given on your decision letter.
