PIP review

JonnycJonnyJonnycJonny Member Posts: 19 Listener
I  know it is advised that claimants should not write 'There has been no change ' when filling out the PIP review form but what about where your disability never even had an impact on a certain descriptor - such as Communicating Verbally - and you were not awarded points ?  Can anyone help ? Thank you

    For the parts that didn't have an impact on me, I put no change as they already knew those didn't impact me originally and have stayed the same.

    Good luck with your renewal. Hope it goes well.

    Thank you for your reply - I thought that must be the case. No impact then no change, obviously. For those descriptors where I was awarded points I have tried to fill out the spaces with as much evidence / information as possible ( no mean feat given how little space there is ) and have provided what I feel is relevant documentary evidence.
    Best wishes to you.

    I added extra pieces of paper for my descriptors. I've never been good at keeping things short and sweet haha. 
    Try and put as much info as you can.

    It is challenging - and at times hard not to repeat what I stated in my original PIP application. I guess they must cross reference the review form with the original application otherwise how can they make a fair decision regarding changes in my condition that impact my daily life.

    If that activity doesn't apply to you then just write doesn't apply or not applicable.
