Pip review

Msbettyboop Member Posts: 25 Courageous
Hi, I was awarded pip till August 2020 but understand I will be reviewed 1 year prior to this, which will be this coming August. Does anyone know if the form will come straightaway in August and does payment stop during this time?   
Is it possible it will come a few months later? I just want to be prepared, especially money wise and im asking as I think I saw a post saying people are starting to get them a few months later after the review time.

    Hello, and welcome, the reassessment used to be 12 months before an award ended but the DWP have reduced it to 6 months for many, so try not to worry and you will be notified in plenty of time, it won’t do any harm getting evidence ready for the reassessment updated medical evidence and hospital letters and maybe start a dairy of how your illnesses, disability effects you on a daily basis in relation to the PIP descriptors.
