    My letter dated 31 july states that will contact me after 27 november 2019. To see if my needs have changed.

    Hi @Pandy74 - & welcome to the community. You will be contacted by the DWP, who will send out a PIP review form. These used to be sent out about a year before your claim was due to end, but this changed to 6 months before. Due to Covid-19, things have changed again, & it seems unlikely that you'll hear until October. You don't need do anything. Your award will stay in place, & your payments continue. :)

    Hi @Pandy74 Welcome to the community, as above PIP review forms are normally sent out 6 months prior to award ending, but they are on hold at present.

    If your award is due to end and no re-assessment has taken place then your award will be extended by 6 months due to the covid situation.

    I would use the time to get together any evidence for your review

    That's good news @Amethyst32, it's helpful to hear other people's experiences and interesting you got a letter and a text. Did you receive the text before the letter?
