Just to let everyone know and I don't know whether anyone else has found this but due to circumstances, my PIP award which was due to be reassessed last month has been granted an extension till July 2021 because of covid situation.

    Thanks for sharing there are lots people in same situation 

    Note though even though it has been extended they can still start the reassessment process at any time and they have now started to reassess those who award has been extended due to covid

    Hi @davegregson40 - & thank you for the info. We have had some members sending in a completed review form, & this crossing with a letter saying they have got an extension of their review also. As Jane says, altho you have had an extension of your PIP review, you might be sent a review form at any time.
