    Hello!
    Call DWP tomorrow. Do you have a social worker or not? My son’s brilliant social worker helped me to fill out the forms and answered my questions as well. She kept me calm as I awaited a reply regarding their decision. Best wishes!

    Hi,

    There's no need to ring DWP tomorrow because you already have the form.

    I'd advise you to fill the form out with as much information as possible about how your conditions affect you. Adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. If you're filling it out yourself then just do a little each day and then it won't be as bad. This is what i did with my daughters last form.

    Don't forget to send evidence with the form because they rarely contact anyone for this. If you don't have enough time to return the form, you can ring DWP to request a further 14 days.

    I'm assuming because you've only just received the form that you were awarded by a Tribunal? If so then, if a decision hasn't been made by the end date, your money will stop. Once a decision's been made, if you're successfully awarded your money will be backdated to the date it stopped.

    Expect another face to face assessment because most people have them, it's rare to have a paper based assessment.

    If you need help with the form this link will tell you what's available in your local area.

    I just go a letter saying my pip award will end in November no form. I won the award at appeal. So I’m rather anxious. The cab helped me with it the first time around. Thanks

    You will need to ring DWP to re-apply, once this is done you'll be sent the PIP2 forms, which will need to be filled and returned with all your evidence.

    Try this link. https://advicelocal.uk/

    Do be aware of the timescales for returning the form. You can request an extra 14 days if needed. Advice centres are overrun with appointments and this makes waiting times rather long.

    The best person to fill out the forms really is yourself because you are the only one that knows how your conditions affect you. There's no specific wording to use, just tell it how it is. Adding a couple of examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. Good luck.

    Hi @susan48 I live in Scotland and was offered help through an income maximiser worker at local Social Work Department to help complete the forms because I found it difficult to write them out if that helps

    Good luck to all who are going through it. 

    I have my f2f for PIP Renewal in 2 weeks. Aaaargh. .......

    They're certainly cutting it fine with me, it runs out in one month!!! 
    Aaaargh again!!! 

    Have to say though, they have been quite fair in offering me an alternative assessment centre with drop off point right outside the door. 
    Possibly because my MP asked them how non wheelchair claimants are supposed to gain access to previous building when the nearest drop off point was 70 metres walk away??!!  

    Dirty tricks abound, me thinks?
