What happens if your review for PIP comes before you go to a tribunal for the previous decision?

Hi Poppy123456, Cockney Rebel, Mikehughescq and all
I thought I would ask you three for some advise as I do not know what to do. I had a F2F PIP assessment in March 2018 and received no points for both. I put in an MR and received 4 points for care and standard mobility. I am waiting for a tribunal date and where I live the waiting time is 54 weeks this will bring it to September 2019. My PIP runs out in March 2020, so if they call me a year early I will have to be reviewed in March 2019. What happens when this happens and I still have not been to a tribunal?  Many thanks

    I'm sure they'll be along soon, but as far as I know, the review claim decision will be effective from the date that it is made.  The tribunal decision will only apply for the period up to that new decision but you will get any back payment that is due if the tribunal awards in your favour.

    hi Tardis
    Thanks for responding I may have 2 tribunals then as when it comes to my review I bet I get awarded not enough to get anything once again. I have just had a representative looking at my case and he said I have a strong one so he is going to ask DWP to look at it again before it goes to a tribunal.
