PIP HELP

charlotte441charlotte441 Member Posts: 45 Connected
Hi everyone, my PIP runs out on the 28th March 2021. they said I won’t get a letter till October time. my condition has gone slightly worse .... is it worth mentioning or will this wreck my claim? as I feel like I should be gaining more points on the descriptor side of things. or should I just wait till I get the form around October time.

    What rates of care and mobility are you getting now? If things have only changed slightly I would be tempted to wait until October when you get a renewal application which will give you the chance to explain how things are for you. Meanwhile use this time to do some research on the internet about the descriptors and how they apply to you.
    If you need help just ask.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Don’t go on “feel”. Identify the specific prescriptions and then get advice. A worsening of a condition is not a relevant change of circumstances unless it results in a functional loss which might score more points.
