    Hi @hulme3030 welcome to the community. Thank you for sharing this with us, I am sorry to hear this. Hopefully it will all go to plan. On the Citizen Advice website, it says: 

    What happens next

    The DWP will write to let you know what they’ve decided. You can challenge the decision if you disagree with it.

    If you say that something’s changed the DWP might:

    • phone you to ask for more information
    • ask you to give them more evidence to show how your condition affects you
    • ask you to go to a face-to-face assessment
    • ask you to complete another PIP2 form (just so they can get the information they need - you won’t have to make a new claim)

    If you tell the DWP that nothing’s changed, they could still ask for more evidence or a face-to-face assessment.

    There's also some information on the Turn2us website, if you have any questions, do let us know  :)

    Hi

    On your current  decision letter it will tell you when you when your review is due. If your current award was given by the DWP then you can expect a review 12 months before it ends. If however you were awarded by tribunal then you will need to reapply at least 14 weeks before the end date. The DWP will send you a form when the time is due either an AR1 review form or a PIP2 application. Which ever you receive you should treat it as a new claim and send relevant evidence and examples of what happens when you attempt each activity
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Every review/re-assessment for claimants carries that risk. You are no different than millions of others.
    You do have the option if the award is not made to go to appeal.
    Sometimes it is best to accept that you may not get the award and plan how you would cope. If you do get it then it will be a lovely surprise for you.

    Why should someone ‘ COPE ‘ not getting something there entitled to? No what I say is to the extra mile and get what ur entitled to

    If the worst happens and they have to go to Tribunal there is currently a wait of about a year. So being prepared now in case that happens is far better than having no time to plan on how they would cope when/if they get the refusal. Isn't it best to always think, what if?
    The only entitlement a claimant has is to make a claim. Entitlement to a benefit award only happens when the DWP or the court agree that it is awarded.
