My wife's pip is up next April do the DWP always contact claimants saying their pip is coming to an end or do they ignore the deadline and let her pip expire If she doesn't contact them. Any help appreciated

    They should invite her to apply again around 14 weeks before but don't rely on it

    Her PIP will end on the stated on the award letter, if a decision isn't made by that date.  If they don't contact her 3 months before then she should ring them to request another form, if she wishes to claim again.

    Best to enquire 20 weeks before the end date and find out the timescale for a new claim to be processed as you do not want your award to end before you get a decision on your new one.
    14 weeks seems optimistic as some are waiting that time to get an assessment then it's 8 weeks for a decision

    I'm surprised your wife ain't had another f2f assessment ALREADY..
    My pip award expires December 2019 where I've received my renewal form already and must be returned by the 6th of January 2919 which don't give me alot of time to get it completed and returned..

    PIP awards given by a Tribunal are different. There's no review 1 year before the award is due to end. Instead they are contacted 3 months before the award is due to end.
