Hi   On my PIP  Assessors  report the last page has a section -." Based on the claimants  likely future  circumstances ,it would be appropriate to review the claim again in ?  years ".      Mine says review award again in 8 years ,   Does this sound right .?    I will be  72  in 8 years time,  i did wonder if it was meant to be  8 months as I will have reached 65 in 8 months time .  Hope this makes  sense .

    Hi @dottydotty

    Hopefully our benefits advisor will be able to comment soon. Have you contacted the department to check if it is correct?

    @dottydotty, You don't really need to know what it means as the timescale is on the decision and may be changed anyway. I'm 67 and the assessor said 3 years till review but the decision maker changed it to 4 years. The timescale they give you could be that they expect a claimant to get better but for old fogies like you and me (only joking) they expect you to get worse. If you question the timescale they will say it's just to check you're getting the right amount of benefit. Once you're given PIP you're on it for life unless your condition changes for the better. They don't review it just because you turn 65 and they wouldn't give anyone PIP for only 8 months. I don't know if you've got your decision letter yet. If you have check what the timescale is on there. If not wait till you get it and then compare it to what the assessor has suggested.

    wildlife  Thankyou  the assessor cured  all my ailments and said I will remain fully intact for another 8 years ,, consequently my award for both care and mobility has been taken  away from me . Just wondered if 8 years seemed a long time ?, and if the assessor realised that in 8years time I wouldn't qualify for Pip anyway .

    Also  have been reading a few articles about Capita assesssors  purposely withioding medical evidence or not asking  requesting it at  the assessment .This may have been my downfall along with the ommissions  /discrepancies .   The Dwp  decision maker  said as much in her write up on"  how she made her decision."   .  MR  is underway and a huge pile of medical papers sent with it .  Along with complaint to Capita .

    @dottydotty good luck with your MR. It sounds like you are doing all you can in the face of lying, cheating assessors. Atos assessors are just as bad and they're all getting away with it. Let's hope things change soon. It's gone on far too long. I'll be 70 when I'm assessed and I absolutely know I was robbed of 3 years of higher rate Daily Living because the assessor lied about my upper body strength and falsified exam results. I should be grateful for what I got when there are others who are robbed of any award when they desperately need it. It's criminal. However no matter how much or little you've lost out on the feelings of injustice are still the same and every time the pain hits me when I'm struggling to prepare veg. or feeling unsteady when letting go of the one and only rail I have in the shower to wash I think about how I was treated. Don't they know you need 2 hands to wash your hair in a shower!!!!!! Of course they do they just choose to forget it as it doesn't fit their plan to keep you off benefit. Rant over....

    wildlife  the assessor put review again in  8 years ,  the decision maker hasn't  altered it . My award should have run until this July , But award ended abruptly . I am of the opinion assessor has got my report mixed up with another .reasons I am referred to as a HE in the observation , and also in a couple of descriptors  reasons . plus other random observations . Could this be possible ?  it was the Friday before  New Years bank holiday weekend  and he was in a rush ?

    wildlife  you are so right , 2 hands to wash your hair , I have reduced mobility in both arms and cannot wash my own hair , but assessor seems to think I can . Last assessment got high rate care low mobility . and now zero . it makes a mockery of the whole system . RM decision is eagerly awaited  but I am not hopeful .  I cant fight what my assessor has reported as he is very high ranking . or was . They wont take my word against his .

    HI,
    With PIP you will continue to be re-assessed regardless of age, unlike DLA. With DLA when you reached 65 you were no longer re-assessed and you kep that award. The amount of time it states on your award letter is correct and you will be re-assessed 1 year before that award is due to end.

    @maid08 Thanks for the ideas about stopping the lies. You've given me and hopefully others a good idea about the solicitors letter. OK you have to pay for the letter but if it get's you the right benefit it will be paid back many times over and the saving in stress will be huge. I would hand the letter over at the beginning as all the online tick boxes have been done by the end and the truth will have to be what the assessor then remembers rather than recording it as it's given to them.
