    Hi there 

    Yes lots of people have had the same it looks like DWP have done a mass review extension this will be due to huge backlogs 

    Do be aware tho just because of the extension that can still do the review at any time

    It seems they have sent thousands out, but beware as they will probably still look to renew 6 months before the original end date.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi @deb74 - yes, another here, mine was changed from Aug 2022 to May 2023; there do seem to have been many extensions recently, as mentioned above. Also, as mentioned above, that doesn't mean you wont get a review form about 6 months before your original end date, which you will need to complete & return.
