    I answered your question on your other thread with this reply.
    HI,

    If you were awarded by DWP then under normal times reviews take place 6 months before your award is due to end. They have been extending some peoples awards because of Covid but if they do this it doesn't mean you won't still be sent review forms at some point.

    If you were awarded by a Tribunal then DWP will contact you 14 weeks before your award ends and you'll then need to ring to start another claim. Those awarded by a Tribunal will not have their award extended because of Covid. This is because DWP can't change a decision made by a Tribunal.

    For a Blue badge, you will automatically qualify if you score 8 points or more in the moving around part of mobility.
    You will also automatically qualify if you scores 10 points in descriptor E for following and planning a journey. If you scored points in any other descriptor for following and planning a journey then you won't automatically qualify.

    If you don't automatically qualify then you can apply and send evidence to support your claim.

    Detail for blue badge is here. https://www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge

    For a disabled persons bus pass then it depends on the criteria of your local council. Put your postcode into this link.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "will having a bus pass and a blue badge go against you when apply for PIP.
