Hi I’ve recently had my pip reviewed not heard anything yet but have had extra pip put into my account from DWP and am a bit confused could anyone help me out as too why this may have been? Was last paid 8th October and wasn’t expecting another payment until 5th November 
Thanks

    HI,

    It's possible you have been awarded a higher award but we can only guess what the extra payment is for. To know for certain you will need to ring DWP and ask.
    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.

    Best advice I can give is treat the review like a new claim put as much information as you can even if you think it’s not relevant also include evidence which is more than a few years old if it is relevant especially if your condition(s) are long term or lifelong! :)

    My review was paper based too no telephone assessment although I did state on my form that a telephone assessment would be very distressing and I got a letter from my care coordinator too support this!
