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.

    Hi @hfr00 :) Just to let you know, I edited the photo you uploaded as the letters and numbers underneath were still quite visible. 

    Good luck with the phone call later!

    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! :)

    Great news and thanks for sharing will give others hope, and I agree with your advice that is exactly what I did and I also got an increased award and only had a paper based assessment

    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!
