Worried about PIP being removed

Hi

i have been receiving PIP for 6 months and it’s helped so much. 

I suffer badly with anxiety and I’m constantly worrying that I’ll receive a letter saying that I’m up for early review, or that my PIP award is being withdrawn. My current award is up to Dec 2025.

I know that I’m theory DWP can review at any point, but am I overthinking this?

    Yes, you're overthinking it. You will be contacted about 8 months before your award is due to end and be sent review forms to fill in an return.

    You're not the first person to worry about this but you need to try to focus on something else because otherwise the constant thinking isn't going to help your health.

    I've claimed PIP for 10 years and never had a review any earlier than the planned ones.
    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.
