    You can start now getting your evidence organised and preparing answers to questions, always treat a review as you would a new claim, if you need more time you can ask them and they may give you 2 extra weeks, also reviews are taking some time my OH's recently took a year.
    Good luck

    I believe my form took about a week after receiving that text message. Not the most ideal time for a review to start but it is what it is.

    As advised above please make sure you treat it as a new claim, even if there's been no changes. Also include a couple of real world examples of exactly what happened the last time you attempted each descriptor that applies to you. Adding detailed information such as where you were, what exactly happened, did anyone see it and what the consequences were.

    Make sure to put your name and NI number on everything you send. Keep copies for yourself. When returning it also make sure you get a certificate of posting, which is free from any post office. You do not need to post it signed for because it doesn't mean it will arrive with DWP the following day.
    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.

    Just on this if you are coming up for a review and you have stuff to add from your last review, if you want your form seen quicker is it better to do a change or circumstances rather then a review
