A while back i posted that i had won my tribunal and because the judge had awarded PIP until the end of the award the DWP could not review my award 12 months prior to the end date.                   Various members posted that this was not true and the DWP can review you at any time even if the judge states that you are entitled to PIP till the end date .                                                             I have today spoke to the DWP appeals team who explained that it is their policy to review awards set by them 12 month's prior to the end date but if you were awarded a new award set by a  tribunal you will be sent review forms 14 weeks before the end date of your award.

    Look like you have cleared the muddy waters, if you want answers go to the top. The DWP have told you crystal clear what their policy is but I expect it’s varaible.

    It would be interesting to know if any members have won a tribunal and still been reviewed 12 months before the end date
