Reassesment

ollieanddukeollieandduke Member Posts: 165 Courageous
My pip is due to end 2020.
Ive been told by dwp i will get a reassessment letter in june this year.
Over the last 6 months my condition has deteriorated meaning I can no longer go upstairs and now sleep down. Should I notify pip now or should I wait for my reassessment letter to arrive.
Also If my letter comes in june does this mean my pip will stop this year instead of next year.

    Hi,

    We are already in June so you nay as well wait for the review form to arrive. Although some people are saying that reviews are now taking placed 6 months before then end date, rather than 12 months before.

    When you receive the form you should class it as a new claim and put as much information as possible about how your conditions affect. Adding 2-3 examples of what happened the last time you attempt that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    I'm not sure if sleeping downstairs is part of any descriptor. @ilovecats can you help here please.

    Once a decision is made if you're not awarded then your money will stop approximately 4 weeks after the decision is made. If you are successful then you'll be given a new award date.
