    hi @kes2611 the assessment will go over many of the points on the renewal forms, they are looking to see how your life is impacted by your conditions but it's not about what's wrong with you but how it affects you against the PIP descriptors.
    Make sure you prepare yourself as best you can and make notes of anything you want to get across.
    Hope it goes well, maybe you could let us know?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi there 

    They have access to previous claims but will concentrate in new one 

    This is why all reviews should be treated as new claim and dont just say nothing has changed.  You need to explain how your condition affects all the descriptors 

    Good luck and let us know how it goes
