I'm asking on behalf of a family member 
On there renewal latter it states that they will be contacted after 19 of November 2019 a year before the orginal claim ends. We are just wondering when the forms are likely to turn up so we as a family can start gathering evidence?
Many thanks

    PIP reviews are now taking place 6 months before the award is due to end and not 1 year before. This changed sometime around the beginning of the year, even though there's no confirmation online regarding the changes. They will now be contact in May.

    Thank you so much, we didn't read the letter properly until a few weeks ago, it sent my family member into a panic, the stress has started to make their hair fall out because they are so worried they didn't have enough time to propare. Hopefully I can put their mind to rest for the time being and help them gather the right Informating. Thank you so much for clafying things for us.
