    It won't stop the need for an assessment but it might/could get you a home visit

    Most people have face to face assessments so expect one of those, it's rare to have a paper based assessment.

    When you receive those forms you should put as much information as possible about how your conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors. Adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    Despite the word review and the shortened form, you should treat this as a new claim. Good luck.
