Still not heard back about PIP review

Commanded2bwell Community member Posts: 78 Courageous
Hello. Does anyone know how long it's taking for the results of a review to come through, right now?

My deadline was 11 November 2023. I was able to send it in the last week of October, two weeks ahead of the deadline. I then received a letter at the end of December telling me that if I hadn't sent it, yet, I should! This letter was dated 30 November, but arrived at least three weeks later than that... which is perhaps an answer to my question.

I don't know when my claim is due to end. How much grace do you get while they process your review?

Is it known what kind of delay to expect in getting the results?

    There's extremely long delays with review decisions so it's not unsual to be waiting an extremely long time. We have many members waiting at least a year. I recently heard that someone had waited 18 months for a decision and that was without any Tribunal or MR.

    Your PIP award will continue until a decision is made on your review. You should expect another assessment because most people have them.
    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 had my review today, exactly 12 months from when I sent the form back. I think that is about average. Forget about it as it will not come round any quicker
