Hello Everyone,
I phoned the DWP on Monday and told the them I've sent my pip review form in on the 16th of this month and the gentleman said it can take up to two weeks for them to log it onto their system and because I sent it by Freepost they will give an extra few  days for it to arrive and he said you've got 29 days what does he mean by that..hope someone can help me..

    Hi,

    You have 1 month to return the form, which is probably what he meant by that. However, you can request an extra 14 days, if you haven't already done that.

    Hi poppy123456
    All he said was it takes five days for it to arrive at the handling centre and then another five days for them to receive it and because I sent it by Freepost envelope the dwp give an extra couple of days for it to arrive, did he mean an extra 14 days.

    Ok thank you, but how will I know they got it
    Will they text me, or if it's lost in the post will they send another form out..I photocopied the form before I sent it..it's all rather worrying

    If you put a mobile number down on the form then they do send texts but sometimes this doesn't happen for several weeks after.

    The best thing you can do is wait another week and ring DWP again to check it's been received.
