I have received a message today from DWP 
We still have your PIP form and will be progressing  your review as soon as we can. you may still need an assessment with a health professional. Your PIP will continue to be paid until we review your claim. You only need to contact us if your circumstances change .

I sent my review form in October 2022 , my current  award ends 2nd June 2023 . Does this mean i have had a 12 month  automatic extension or is it a general text they send everyone?

    I am so worried about this  and would be grateful if anyone has had the same message and knows what to expect next.

    Once the report was returned to DWP a decision can take up to 12 weeks. Once a decision is made you'll be sent the decision letter.
    As the call was only 3 days ago then if the decision has now been made it can take up to a couple of weeks to receive the decision letter.
    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.
