    Contacting you 14 weeks before the end date means there's no review. When they send you the letter 14 weeks before they will ask if you want to continue claiming PIP then you must ring to ask for the forms to be sent. The forms they send won't be the shortened version, they will be the full forms. If a decision isn't made by the time your end date arrives your PIP will stop. If a decision goes in your favour you'll be back dated to the date it stopped. If a decision is made before the end date and it's in your favour you will of course have a new award date.

    As they are contacting you 3 months before your award ends then yes it will be a new claim with the same forms you filled out the first time you applied. The only difference with this is they don't contact you 1 year before the award is due to end. In a way i think i would prefer that because if when you're review comes you're refused your money will stop regardless of the award not being due to end until the following year. With this award that you have if the worst does happen and you're not awarded it next time then you wouldnt have lost as much as you could have if it was a review.

    Alot of Tribunal decisions give awards with end dates like this, it seems like DWP did the same when they offered you the award before the Tribunal. I'd leave well alone, you have Enhanced on both and you can't get higher than that.

    The length is still 3 years but now you don't have a review 1 year before it's due to end. Better, for sure in my opinion.

    Don’t mess with this. This is good news. Do remember that you are on the top possible rate of mobility.
