Hi, my PIP expires in 6months... I received a form I was passed for 3years in march 2017. Enhanced care was transfering from dla 

I suffer from schizophrenia my days vary and a have times I'm well for weeks even months but require a lot of support even on good days.

I'm in olanzipine 12.5+2.5mg when required at the time of last assessment I was on 20 will this mean I have to go through the assessment centre stuff again

    @blue32, Hello yes, most reviews have a F2F unless you send in enough evidence to support your claim, remember PIP is a benefit to help with your daily living activities and isn't awarded on a diagnosis, illness or the amount of prescription medicines you take but your abilities in preforming the PIP descriptiors in a safe, repeatable and timely manner, so give examples of what happened or happens when you try to preform each descriptior as you fill the form in. Also please remember that if you are required to attend a F2F you will have to justify your written answers.

    Hi @blue32, it is really rare that a review won't include a F2F assessment. It is important to treat the review like it is a new claim and include the same amount of information and evidence. If there is anything we can do to help then please do let us know. :)
