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.

    They can review you at anytime for ESA and PIP. However, this doesn't usually happen for PIP, more so for ESA. Awards given by a Tribunal are not reviewed and DWP do not send you review forms 14 weeks before. DWP contact you 14 weeks before asking if you wish to continue to claim PIP you need to ring to ask for more PIP2 forms, to re-apply.

    A new claim or a review it's still the same thing it all leads to a new award 
    Yes they can review you at any time if they think they have a reason to do so but any new awards that  come from a tribunal will be paid till the end date that is their policy this came from a manager in appeals dept so i am sure they know what they are talking about
