PIP REVIEW

Apocalypse7Apocalypse7 Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hello, I was awarded enhanced/enhanced PIP in June 2016 for 4 years with a review (and I quote) "not before 5th June 2019"
 I've called DWP & was told my review letter would arrive in October 2019, we are now halfway through November. Can anyone shed some light for me please? Current award ends in June 2020. Thank you Andy.

    Thank you for responding, yes I shall call them, but i am wondering as to why I've not had any correspondence from them. 
    I assumed that their computer system would have automatically sent out the form once the date had passed?

    Hello, most reviews are happening 6 months before their end date not as stated in the original award letter. This is due to a huge back log. Start collecting supporting documents and evidence for your review.

    Hi,

    @wilko is correct, reviews are now taking place 6 months before and not 12 months before but chances are if you ring and ask this question the adviser you speak to won't know, this is because they are reading from a screen and often have limited knowledge. There was no formal announcement that the review dates had changed but they did at the beginning of the year.
    Community champion and proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice i have given to members here on the community.
