    Hey @nickh if you've not received your forms, I'd suggest giving the DWP a call, though I believe your reward will carry on until they make a new decision.

    Sorry Albus but I disagree with that. The timescales we are given for the work capability assessment reviews are nothing more than a guide. 

    Support Group and LCWRA are ongoing awards until a new decision says otherwise. It has no end date like PIP has. 

    Even if a claimant rings to ask, they will only be given a timeframe guide. Pointless ringing for this reason. 
    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.

    Nothing has changed since the last time you asked this a couple of weeks ago. I wouldn’t have expected you to receive your form at the moment because as far as I’m aware they are still suspended for the majority of people. 

    Support Group is an ongoing award as i advised previously.

    Which is why it’s pointless ringing them. All they do is cause you even more anxiety because you expect the form by the date they tell you. When you ring them they tell you another date.

    I think it is a good thing you have rung them.  Now you can breathe and feel some peace for the time being. Hugs x
