    HI,

    Yes, you will still be sent the review forms, which will need to be filled in and returned.

    Hi and welcome

    Yes you will still get a review but they are dealing wit all the backlogs and new claims which is why they have put an extension on but use the time to prepare and get your evidence together as the form will arrive at some time

    Okay, I have all evidence ready, only asked about review as I have a change of circumstances with my mobility. Should I wait until review or report it?

    If the review is due in the not too distant future then I would wait, also is the change permanent and likely to be on going?

    I agree with @woodbine I would wait to report the change as it may take just as long for them to go through the change process as it will be for the wait for the review

    The change is permanent yes but I can probably wait until I get my review in the next few months.

    What is the procedure when you report a change of circumstances? Will a review come early if I did that?

    Reporting a change of circumstances means you'll be sent more PIP2 forms, which will be sent out as soon as you report the changes.
