    HI and welcome,

    As you haven't stated which benefit this is for then i'll assume it's for PIP, is that correct? If so then reviews now take place 6 months before your award is due to end and not 12 months before.

    Hi & welcome to the community @deirdre12 - I hope if your query was about PIP, that Poppy has put your mind at rest as reviews are done 6 months before your award is due to end, not 12, so no need to contact the DWP.

    Hi yes it should be around April time you get the review form . Once you have the form we can give you more advice about completing it but no point in worrying about it now

    Although there's still a couple of months yet i'd advise you to start to gather some relevant evidence to support your claim when the forms do arrive. They very rarely contact anyone for any evidence. This review should be treated as a new claim, not a review. The form should be filled in 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.

    Once you receive the forms, if you need more advice please just ask and i'm sure someone will advise you further.
