New PIP review

amy1188 Community member Posts: 19 Connected
I have revived my new questionnaire as my pip is due to expire in a few months. Nothing has really changed for me since my last one, do I just write no change or do I have to re write everything out? 
Obviously last time I wrote everything in quite a lot of detail and I don’t really want to have to do it all again when it all exactly the same.

    Hi there @amy1188, I'd strongly advise against just writing 'no change' it's best to treat this as a new application for PIP. As long as you can show how your issues affect each descriptor, that'll be fine. So some detail, but don't drown them in information that may not be needed, if that makes sense?

    it is always best to treat a review as you would a new claim giving detailed answers and up to date relevant evidence, but beware they are taking quite a long time once returned to getting a decision my OH's took from Oct '22 to Oct '23.
    Make sure you get it in the post about 10 days before its due back and get proof of posting from the PO  don't pay for signed for/recorded delivery, your current award will stay in payment until a new award is decided.
    Good luck
