    @Verity08 hi and welcome to scope, PIP is a benefit paid in work or not working providing the job you do doesn't clash with the reasons you get PIP, renewals atm can take upto 12 months from start to finish but your existing claim will remain in payment until a new decision is made.
    Make sure you treat your renewal like a new application.

    Hi @Verity08, welcome to the community.

    As woodbine mentioned, unless it clearly goes against the reason why you're claiming PIP you should be okay. PIP isn't means tested so you don't necessarily need to tell them you're working. Just so you know, I've moved your post over to our PIP claim so that more members can find it should you have any more questions.

    Good luck with your renewal, I hope it goes well :)
