Will my benefits still carry on automatically?

I was on pip and it got transferred to adult disability payment from social security Scotland. My award is due to end on the 16th of October. However about two months ago I got sent out a change of circumstances form. No chances were made and i sent jt back and I'm still waiting for a review. Will my claim be closed or will it carry in as normal ?

    This is a review for you, rather than a change of circumstances. Moving from PIP to ADP was an automatic transfer but you will have still been due a review at the same time your PIP was due.

    For PIP because of the backlogs awards are continuing to be paid until a new decision is made. However, i don't know if this is the same for ADP. I'd advise you to ring SSS and ask them.
    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.
