    Hi @Hunter,

    Glad to hear you've been given high rate. Apparently whilst PIP is usually for a fixed period of time there are "ongoing" awards, which might be what you've got.

    Of course, it doesn't mean that you'll never get reassessed - as you never know what the Government might do next (many people had DLA for life and had to get reassessed), but hopefully you won't have to worry for a long time.

    It would do no harm if you write to the DWP address on your letter and ask them your question or even call them.
