Hi All
I have received a text about my PIP review even though it runs until March 2024.
I am getting stressed already and i only received the text yesterday. My ailments include a rare Autoimmune condition. So i am immuno spressed being controlled with meds. What will a review form include and i assume similar medical evidence to when i made the claim. Will it be a face to face assessment - my first one was phone call.
Any advice much appreciated.
Thanks,
Naila

    I just replied to you on another thread with this comment.

    You need to treat it as a new claim and send all relevant evidence to support your claim. The form is shorter but don't be fooled by that and do not just write "no change" even if there is no change.

    Yes, you can write a diary if you want to. However, it's much better to include a couple of real world incidents of exactly what happened the last time you attempted each descriptor that applies to you. Adding detailed information such as where you were, what exactly happened, did anyone see it and what the consequences were.

    Most people have assessments which are mostly by telephone. Some are phone/video. Review decisions are taking an extremely long time for a lot of people so you could be waiting as long as a year for a decision. Your current award will continue until a decision is made on the review.

    I can really hear how you are feeling stressed at the moment @naila_007. Would anything, in particular, help you to feel less stressed / does anything usually help when you are feeling stressed? Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything we can do to help make this more manageable for you  :)

    Hi Poppy i got my form today. Am correct in saying i will write no change but explain i still have the difficulty with the activity. It would mean i have to use a few extra pages as there isnt much room in the boxes.

    You can put no change but you will still need to go into more details. Please do not just write this and nothing else. Yes, you can use extra sheets of paper. Make sure you state clearly which question it relates to and write on the form "please see extra sheets for more information"

    Don't forget those real world incidents i advised previously, this is the most important thing.
