    Hi,

    You most likely won't receive the full 4 weeks but you may receive something. You'll need to ring and ask to know for sure because it will depend on the reasons why you canceled it.

    Not the reasons but has the award now been revised? You need give no reason to end the PIP award just tell the DWP to revise their earlier decision.as you no longer qualify for any of the descriptors.

    If the PIP was stopped because of an improvement in their condition then there may not be any more money to receive.

    Legally a claim cannot be cancelled. DWP do this all the time but legally it’s a nonsense. An award can only end if there are grounds for superseding the original decision. I find the decision to cancel is a rare one and often driven by a threat by DWP e.g. end your claim or we’ll look at prosecution for fraud etc. It would be good to know exactly what the motivation was for this so called cancellation.
