Hello I've just started claiming pip on the basic living allowance however my condition has worsened so I'm doing another form to say that my circumstances have changed. 
I was wondering will I still keep receiving the pip I'm getting at the moment

    Are you aware that a worsening of condition must have been present for a least 3 months? Also a worsening of condition doesn't automatically entitle you to more points for a higher award. Did you get some expert advice before reporting changes?

    Your current award will continue until a decision is made on your Change of circumstances.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @butler1986

    Welcome to the community :) I see Poppy has answered about how the "worsening of condition must have been present for a least 3 months?" 

    How long has your condition be worsening for? I hope you aren't in pain!

    Just to let you know, I popped your post into our PIP, DLA and AA section in case you had any other queries :)
