Hi all

Just wondered if anyone else has the same situation. My pip award is till Feb 2020 however I haven't had anything through yet about renewal. I read a few have enquired and been told it now 6 months b4 they send out the forms but others say still 12 months. I am reluctant to contact them as don't want to tempt fate and end up losing what I have b4 the award ends tho my condition hasn't changed if anything more disabilities now.

    Hi,

    I have heard that they are contacting some 6 months before but i've not seen any confirmation of this. The only way you'll know for sure is to ring them. Either way, you'll be contacted at some point.

    Best to ring them just in case your renewal letter has gone astray

    It is now 6 months and ringing them would potentially be a bad idea as it may well bring forward them starting the process.
