    Hi @Doris68, welcome to our community :) I hope you're doing okay, despite the anxiety. We're here to help :)

    Review forms are sent out several months before your award is due to end. If they cannot review you before the award is due to end they normally give you an automatic extension.

    I hope that reassures you a little, I know it can be quite anxiety-inducing. If you've any other questions let us know. Or if you just want to talk about something to maybe distract you!
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Not up to a year for a Mandatory Reconsideration. It’s up to 12 weeks. If it gets to Tribunal stage (very likely) then it can take several months potentially longer.
    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.
