    They will send you a review form in the post when your review is due, no need to reapply. Just note that there is a long delay in completed reviews so your review will take time to complete, however it might be quicker come september. You award will continue till your review is complete and a new decision is made.

    Treat reviews as if your doing a new claim though, don't just write no change to the descriptors. You should aim to do a seperate A4 piece of paper for each descriptor explaining how things effect you, what the consquences were when you attempted them and if anyone witnessed you doing them. Write your name and national insurance number ontop of each piece of paper.

    Goodluck with your review and welcome to the community.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.

    Were you awarded by DWP or a Tribunal? If DWP are you sure your award ends this September? If it does I would have expected you to have been contacted about 8 months before the award was due to end. 

    Please check your award letter to see exactly when your award is due to end. 

    Or, if awarded by a Tribunal DWP would usually contact you about 14 weeks before your award is due to end. 
    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.
