Pip claim

mk2000mk2000 Member Posts: 57 Connected
Hi my friend has been receiving pip for the last year but not the correct amount he didn't no he could appeal would it be to late now ? Is their nothing he could do ... I heard he could make a new claim ? But does that mean he'd loose his old one and stop getting the money. Thanks

    The maximum amount of time you have to request a Mandatory Reconsideration and a Tribunal is 13 months. If it was longer than this that the decision was made then your friend has past the time in which anything can be done regarding that claim.

    Reporting a change of circumstances is always risky and your friend should get expert advice before doing so. No one on an internet forum can tell you if there's any risks to their current award by reporting those changes.

    Your friend can use this link to check what advice agency is near to them for that advice. https://advicelocal.uk/

    @poppy123456 when his claim has got to the 3 years the end and he has to renew it could he send the extra information in then ? Thanks and could the amount be changed then

    When it comes to renewal he should treat that as a new claim and send as much relevant information as possible, and yes the award can be changed at renewal.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.
