    HI,

    Yes the 6 month extension still applies but she'll still need to fill out the form and return it. Just because she's got the extension it doesn't mean the review isn't going to happen, they still need to be reviewed.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
