    If your PIP stopped then there won't be a review because there's no award to review. Did you request the Mandatory Reconsideration? and if that failed requested the Tribunal?

    If you haven't yet requested a mandatory reconsideration you could still do so. If the decision involved an official error, it can be looked at any time later (no time limit). An official error can include things like the DWP failing to take things into account or failing to ask you about things that are relevant to your claim.

    If you've already asked for a mandatory reconsideration and you haven't heard yet, this is definitely taking too long, and you should follow it up and insist on getting a mandatory reconsideration notice so that you can take the next step of going to a tribunal.

    Remember too that there is no bar on reclaiming PIP whether or not you also challenge the decision to stop it. It really depends what has happened here. If your PIP has been suspended due to a lack of information, which can also happen, then you should ask why and complain, as it's also far too long for them not to have looked into it and made a proper decision by now.
