    You can not make a new claim once you reach retirement age, but an existing claim will continue, they will send you review when they are ready but once returned it can take upto 12 months but again the current claim will remain in payment.
    2024 The year of the general election...the time for change is coming 💡

    If your award is due to end in a few months you should have been contacted already for your review. 
    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.

    I did not say it ended in a few months i said it ends a few months after my retirement age and would i be sent review before that, Sorry for not being clear,

    Depending on the dates you might be sent the review forms before you retire but as long as you get an award it will continue past retirement age for as long as you have an award.
