I have been getting pip standard rate for over 1 year as I suffer chronic pain due to fibromyalgia. I have been diagnosed with COPD should I contact them

    Have your daily living or mobility needs changed since the original award? If they haven’t then there’s nothing to report. A new condition is not automatically a relevant change if circumstances. PIP is based on the consequences of your conditions not the number of them.

    If your condition has changed as so that it has altered your abilities to preform the daily living tasks or your mobility has got worst then you may feel you should inform DWP but be warned you may and most likely have to fill in a new PIP form and go for a f2f again. I did as my mobility had got worst over 12mths since last f2f. I was awarded the same standard living and moved up to enhanced mobility. Which is what I expected the award to be. Good luck.
