    Hi @Chixie96 and welcome to the community! What is the assessment report for? It is fairly common for assessments to be reviewed on a regular basis

    Hi
    thank you I’m hoping to come over from life award dla to pip

    report very accurate saying my problems should be assessed again in 9 months because waiting on pain clinic she ticked yes to no changes expected even then? You’re insight would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you for clarifying this. If it says a review in this time then this probably will happen. PIP is normally awarded in 3 year blocks regardless of whether the condition is likely to not change. I am not a benefits advisor so wouldn't really know how else to help you with this. I would advise waiting for other members of the community to respond or calling our helpline on 0808 800 3333 :)

    Thank you 
    hopefully someone can help me and give me clarity as it’s making no sense and being told different things 
    I appreciate your input

    That's not correct, sorry. PIP isn't always awarded in 3 year blocks. People are often awarded it for 2 years with review after just 1 year. My daughter was one of them and she was awarded last October for 2 years and her review is October this year.  My first award for PIP was awarded for 3 years and reviewed after 2 years. Your award will most likely be 2 years with review after 1 year because I've never heard of the reviewing after just 9 months. 

    I thought I answered this yesterday, seems like my comments were all removed, how strange.
