    Hi @kass PIP reviews can take place any time up to 1 year prior to your claim due to be reviewed. No need to worry :) all you need to do is wait for them to send the forms out

    Yes, usually they do send the forms around 1 year before the award is due to end. However, i have heard that reviews now take place 6 months before the award is due to end but i can't find anything that confirms this.

    If you were awarded by a Tribunal then it's different and you will be contacted approximately 14 weeks before the award ends.

    @kass, just wait till the paperwork arrives you won’t be forgotten, in the mean time start a file of evidence that you can send and use to support your pip review. Up to date medical evidence ect and recent medical reports that  supports your disability, diagnosis and prognosis and abilities to do the pip des.

    Oh I've read they contact you three months before if you were awarded PIP via a tribunal. I'm not 100% sure though.

    All you can do is wait, as i advised there's speculation that reviews are now 6 months before. If you're worried then you could ring DWP and ask.
