    Hi,

    Before reporting a change of circumstances you need to look at the PIP descriptors to see where you could potentially score more points for a higher award. A worsening of condition doesn't mean you'll automatically score more points.

    There's always a risk reporting changes because they will send you more PIP forms to fill in and return with all your evidence. Another face to face assessment will most likely be needed because most people have them. You do risk losing everything you already have but of course you could be awarded higher or your award could also stay the same.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
