    You might be as well giving them a call, you don't want to miss getting the paperwork, for the next 3 months all assessments will either be paper based or by phone
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi,

    As your award is due to end in the next few months you should have already received your review form. If you have and it's been returned and a decision hasn't been made by the time the award is due to end, because of Covid19 DWP will contact you and extend your current award. This is so that vulnerable people will not be left without money during these very difficult times.

    Reviews and assessments are suspended for at least 3 months and they won't be sending out any review forms during that time. If you are due to receive your form in July this year then i can't tell you what will happen that far ahead because that will be outside the 3 months. You will need to wait until nearer the time to see what will happen.

    I'm sure the announcement will be posted somewhere on the forum after the 3 months.
