3 hour pip review

Willow2023 Community member Posts: 5 Listener
Hi everyone. Had a 3 hour pip review today in addition to the call starting nearly 1 hour late. So 4 hours in total spent waiting/reviewing. Lady said I would hear in around 6 to 8 weeks so I will receive at least one more payment in that timeframe. If they then decide to refuse my renewal will I have to pay the money back between the review and their decision?  It’s been really stressful and now I’m worrying even more. Thank you

    You will continue with your existing award until a decision is made, but the assessor had no inkling that it would take 6-8 weeks, it might but it might also take 12 weeks depending how busy they are.
    Good luck
