    Ring ESA and tell them your PIP is back in place. They will want to check that you still meet the SDP qualifying conditions. If satisfied they will restart it and backdate it to the appropriate date. You do need to ring ESA for this to happen.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
