    Hi and welcome 

    Nobody can really say if it will be sorted by then depends on backlogs and how soon you get an assessment 

    It you dont hear anything b4 end month would give them a call to chase it up 

    Once the process is complete if you are awarded i think you will get back pay to when it stopped but I'm not 100%, certain of this 

    I am sure other members can confirm if this is right 

    Let us know how you get on

    Hello @Gobbygirl66 and welcome to our online community!

    Just to add to what @janer1967 advised, if you are awarded PIP after the 28th February it should be backdated to when your claim ended.

    I've moved your post over to our PIP, DLA and AA discussion board and amended the title slightly to make it easier to spot, but please let us know if you have any further questions.

    @Gobbygirl66 when did you return the renewal claim? As above I would definitely give then a call in the next few days.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Hi again I would predict it will be a while yet then 

    It can take a few weeks b4 DWP get the form as it is first received by mailing centre and needs to be scanned onto the system first mine took nearly 3 weeks 

    They then send it to assessment providers to organise assessment and they do have some backlogs 

    It would have to be quick turn around to have assessment and decision  by your current award end date 

    You can ring and check they have your form if not say you have sent it sbf request an extension
