    Hi,

    She needs to check her award to see exactly how long it’s for. Reviews currently take place 6 months before the award is due to end, for awards given by DWP. 

    For awards given by Tribunal DWP contact you 14 weeks before the award is due to end.

    Did she report a change of circumstances? This will prompt more forms to be sent to you and the process starts all over again.

    Although they can re-assess you at anytime for PIP it doesn't often happen that far from when an award is due to end. All i can advise is that you tell her to ring DWP and ask why she's been sent the review forms so soon.

    You also said her award is every 3 years but not everyone is awarded for 3 years. Some are only awarded for just 1 or 2 years.
