Does my money stop during PIP process?

edited February 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I was awarded pip for 4 years in 2016 November  standard rate on each I am now in a wheelchair and have been since January 2017 I have been told as my condition is worse to apply for a change of circumstances but I’m worried that if I do my money will stop until I have been assessed does anyone know if this is the case as it’s been putting me off applying or shall I just wait until my review  I must state before this I had been on mobility for life.The whole process of the pip stresses me.

    Hi @iwg

    Welcome it’s great to meet you this afternoon.

    I have just checked the “CAB Website”
    for you.

    They do say that you need to tell the “DWP”

    Do you have a local “CAB” ???????

    As you will be best to see them first.

    They will be able help/support you.

    Hi @iwg

    A warm welcome to the community! 

    I am sorry to hear that you are having a stressful time, PIP can be very long and difficult process. 

    Many of our members have had similar experiences and will be able to provide you with support. You may be able to relate to some of their experiences.

    I do hope you will find this helpful.

    Take care

    Hi and welcome

    If you do put in a change of circumstance your money will continue until a new decision is made. As your award was for four years in 2016 you can expect to be reviewed this year ie. a year before the end dated
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
