Hello world (pip assessment)


Observations on what you say and do during the assessment

The assessor will use the information you gave on your PIP claim form but also draw opinions from what you say and do on the day. For example, they might ask you how you got to the assessment centre. If you say you came on the bus, they’ll make a note that you can travel alone on public transport.

You might also be asked to carry out some physical tasks during the assessment. Don’t feel you have to do things in the assessment that you wouldn’t normally be able to do. If you do them on assessment day, the assessor may think you can always do them. If you’re not comfortable with something – say so.

The assessor will also make a note of your mental state during the assessment – for example, they’ll record whether you look depressed or happy, tense or relaxed and how you cope with social interaction. https://questionsgems.com/questions-asked-at-pip-assessment/
