    It depends if your PIP is a review or a new claim. Some awards have review dates, while others don't and they're contacted 3 months before their award is due to end. Once they reach the end date then PIP stops if a decision hasn't been made within that time.

    When is your PIP due to end? If it's next year then yours is a review, in which case did you return the form within the time given?

    Maybe you've had your assessment and a decision's been made and you weren't successful?

    If in doubt about payments ect phone DWP this should be your first port of call for the latest information regarding your PIP or other benefits  you are claiming, but once you have the details you can come to the scope forum for help advice or opinions.
