    You will need to contact Social Security Scotland to ask for extra time to return the form. https://www.mygov.scot/contact-social-security-scotland
    will this affect his pip he's due a pay on 20th June,
    I think you mean payment is due 20th July because June has gone. If he doesn't receive that payment then you need to ring PIP.

    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.
