Hi my name is Jo. I have recently been sent a Pip Review form on 14/09/2018 and sent back to them on 17/09/2018. How do i know if theyv'e received it? and how long roughly is it taking this year to hear from them about either a f2f assesment or a paper based decision?. Hope someone can help?. Thank you

    Hi Lindadenise thank you for your reply. You say it took 4 months to assesment, was this, this year? and did they let you know they had received your Review form or not?. Thank you

    With a review the DWP or the assessor is not required to look at your previous award. A review is effectively treated as a new claim.

    It is not good enough to say 'there has been no change - please refer to the previous application and award as what the situation was then is still the situation now'. Doing that you are as likely than not to be awarded 0 points.

    It happened to me - in 5 years three face to face assessments. I had enough so threw the towel in.
