    You've had a paper based assessment because there was enough of information already without the need for any assessment. This isn't a bad sign in my opinion and it's very very rare for someone to be refused with this.

    Although the text advises you not to ring, you can ring PIP anytime to ask them what the decision is and they will tell you.
    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.

    It's highly unlikely that you've been refused. I think i've only ever known this happen twice since i've been a member here and that's since 2017.

    PIP helpline open at 9am, not 8. Other benefit helplines such as ESA/JSA and UC open at 8am.

    I don't know what your current award was before the review decision but yes it can be lowered, stay the same or be increased. Unlikely to stop completely with a paper based review.

    Personal experience quite a few times with paper based assessments and the award has stayed the same.

    Please be aware that when you ring they may not answer straight away.

    That's great news but that award length is quite short. Are you also aware that if you think you should have been awarded for a longer period of time you can challenge just the award length. You will need to make sure you tell them that you're happy with the award itself but think you should have been awarded for longer and tell them the reasons why you think this. The first step to this is the Mandatory Reconsideration.

    It will depend on whether that's the end date or the review date. If it's the end date then your review will be anytime from December 2025.
