Pip renewal

I've been accessed and receiving pip .
My question is:
 Do you have to have another interview if nothing has changed?

    Do you need another assessment interview if nothing has changed at time of renewal?

    Yes most people have another face to face assessment, even when nothing has changed. When filling out the forms you should put 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.

    I wouldn't advise just putting "no change"

    Hi @rocklobster, just to echo @poppy123456, you will have to have another face to face assessment. I understand how frustrating this can be, especially if nothing has changed!

    I hope it goes okay and please do let us know if there is anything we can do to help. :)
