    If I understand correctly you’ve been told your PIP is being reviewed, or, did you ask for the review? Either way, there’s no time limit as such. It takes as long as it takes. However, the biggest mistake you can make is to just write “no change” and hope it all goes away. A form full of that will trigger a face to face assessment. 

    I note the new diagnosis but the only thing that matters is whether those conditions have changed any of the points you already scored. It’s one to get face to face advice on quickly.

    How does that work? I can understand if you say that there has been a change either for the worse or better there should be a face to face assessment to check on that change and to see how it impacts on the previous points scored. But to tell the DWP that nothing has changed since the last review and award you will also have a face to face?
    Wouldn't the DWP have to show what evidence they hold that suggests a change.

    Please be careful, I had forms sent re the same, filled in myself as it was two pages. I Iost. Still fighting, trying to find someone to help me as I filled in own paperwork CCAC etc were unable to take my case.

    They’re asking what the current position is. Whatever you answer you are expected to evidence it. I think they’re wholly wrong but it’s equally not hard to understand why DWP believe that if you’re going to claim no change you should easily be able to evidence it. So, when you don’t...

    Writing “no change” and no more is a currently a recipe for disaster.

    I had a PIP review starting last August. Despite worsening condition, I went from 16 points to 0.
