I rang on Friday asking if I could have results or an update to what is happening to my PIP assessment  i had in February  this year. I was told they (PIP) had not received  the assessment  yet from Capita 
So I asked what happens to my PIP benefit when it is up on July 19th I was told PIP will be extended for six months. 
Now I'm wondering and I wish I had have asked the guy what happens in six months time.
Will recovery of PIP be made if I get results telling me I've been refused PIP or my benefit has been decreased?
Does anyone know? 
Many Thanks
Best Wishes

    If they have officially extended your award by 6 months then no recovery will happen.

    Hi folks I hope you are both well and safe.
    I thank you both for your replies. I'm relieved now to know no recovery will happen, even if they ask.
    I was just sitting twiddling my thumb when that thought came into my head and I just had to ask.
    I really appreciate  you being there.
    Best wishes
