Our new name and look doesn’t affect the PIP process and DWP will continue to make a decision on PIP claims.
However, we understand it may raise some questions for claimants.That’s why we’ve put together this short guide to help you understand what’s happening, why we’ve changed and what to say to those you represent, who might ask you to help explain the change.We’re fully aware the PIP claim process can sometimes be complex, but we hope this guide will help you clarify what we do so you can be confident you have all the relevant information.

"DWP will still make decisions on PIP eligibility" yeah eventually they've been making my decision for a little over 2 bloody months now (my MRis also 2 months in waiting too went in the day before my PIP assessment in April)

Does anyone know why these company's feel the need to waste time and money changing there company names? You just have to look at the H&W Program, its the same old faces/provider's just with a new coat of paint over the cracks? :S I dare say that Atos's re-branding will be the same? :huh:

Because their corporate identity name ATOS is too well know Dude so they change their name to make people think they have changed as a company, but haven`t. Last I read they were a French IT company. Now they make decisions whether people live or die. It`s a bit like the NHS changing it`s name to `PATD healthcare` or `Pay At The Door` medicals. Privatisation is looming....

No doubt Independently assessing the disabled with nil points as they already proved to be such a success at with the WCAs. Who better to shaft those in need on behalf of the DWP who in turn merely make the decisions based on Atos findings. Funny how they seemed to agree on so many occasions especially factoring in the success rate of appeals against their joint incompetence. Independent of all medical logic and utterly corrupt - perfect fit and another small fortune of taxpayers money timewasted away on pointless admin when all along they only had to refer to the already existing GPs and specialists of each claimant. Why the hell they can't do it through a respected body like CAB who support the strongest applications beats me :evil:
