    Hi and welcome,

    As you will be under state pension age then you will most likely need another face to face assessment because most people have them. You will be sent review forms about 6 months before the award is due to end. When you receive them you should fill them out with as much information as possible, adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. You will also need to make sure you send relevant evidence with the form to support your claim.
