    Hi and welcome 

    It depends on how you were awarded if at tribunal you will be sent new application 14 weeks prior to award ending and it will be a new application 

    If awarded by DWP normally you are sent renewal forms 6 months prior to award ending 

    If it was tribunal your award will not be extended 

    If it is a DWP award due to covid they are being extended but you can still be reviewed at any time . If this is the case for you I would ring and ask if you have been extended 

    Hope this helps just ask if your not sure

    @janer1967 it seems so unfair that if it was decided at tribunal you have to go through it all again! You would have thought that because it’s a judge and a doctor and a disability expert that would have more clout than some office worker sat in DWP deciding on someone’s life. So if it has been decided at Tribunal are you given enough time to resubmit so that there would not be a gap in payments because last time it took about a year from start to finish!

    @Lulu_1949 I agree it does seem unfair but who knows who makes these rules 

    The new application isnt much different in process just the forms are more detailed and looked at as a new claim 

    In normal circumstances the 14 weeks is enough time to complete the process and if awarded with no appeal it could naybe be completed in time so no gaps in payment 

    If there are any gaps this will be backdated 

    However these are not normal times as we all know 

    If it goes to appeal again then back pay will also be due

    With a review you still have to treat it as if it’s a new review from what I have ready on here . I won’t be getting mines till the end of the year thank god.

    @janer1967 thank so much for answering. I dread going through it all again but it’s for my son. He has got worse and is not on enhanced but because I dread all the forms I have not submitted that he is worse and thought I would wait till his review.

    It isnt always good idea to report a change as you risk what he already has and you should get expert advice b4 doing so 

    When does his award end ? 

    Have look at where you think he would score more points now but as you know DWP may not agree
