    Hi there @veevee, you can be reviewed 1 year earlier then it says on the award letter. This is standard practice, I think.

    Youl need to complete the form if you still need to put a claim in.

    hope that help

    Hi,
    Yes susan is correct PIP awards are reviewed 1 year before they are due to end. The form does need to be returned by the date stated in the letter. 14 days extra time can be given, if needed, you just need to ring DWP and ask for the extension.

    Don't be fooled by the shortened version of the form, if you tick no change you'll be sent for another assessment, for sure. You need to put as much information down as possible and send support evidence with the form. They rarely contact anyone for evidence. Expect another face 2 face assessment because most people have them. Good luck.

    Absolutely the review is treated as a new claim. The decision you will get will probably be different from the one you are now receiving , that is if you are unlucky. 

    I always (three times) went from receiving Enhanced Mobility & Care to 0 points each time.
