Pip Renewal

MsbettyboopMsbettyboop Member Posts: 25 Courageous
Hi my pip ends August 2020 and I believe I will be up for renewal/ assessment this February. I just wanted to know will I continue to be paid pip until another decision has been made?

    Hi,

    Yes, it will continue until the decision's made. If a decision hasn't been made by your end date then your PIP will stop.

    I see people have commented that if award made by a tribunal get contacted 14 weeks before and if by pip then 6 months or previously a year before. This in not correct mine was by a tribunal and they still contacted me a year before to renew

    Hi @nickih and welcome to the community. It used to be a year before but they shortened this. Was it recently you were contacted?

    Just wanted to come back and update this thread with good news. I sent my review forms back just before we went into lockdown and was not expecting to hear back anything either for a few months or was expecting a letter for a telephone assessment. I thought I would only be awarded mobility this time or my whole pip might get taken off me. Today had the dreaded brown envelope arrive and was surprised to see I must of had a paper based assessment and was awarded standard daily living and enhanced on mobility till 2023 so I'm absolutely chuffed as ive just come out of hospital a few days ago and a huge weight taken off my shoulders and made me feel better.
