    That doesn’t sound right. Ring PIP on Monday and see if you can get them to instruct the assessment provider to cancel the appointment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    ...a select number of recent awards are subject to immediate review following an award, renewal or appeal. 
    Was not aware of that. Have come across it for ESA but not PIP. How brutal.
    However, they were doing review would the notification of that not come from DWP with another questionnaire. This post only refers to a letter from Capita with a new assessment date which mades me wonder if it is an error in Capita’s work schedule.

    I haven't received another form to fill in just a letter for a telephone assessment

    Hello @Lldixiell. The letter you received saying you have PIP until 2025, is there any possibility this was an extension letter rather than an award letter?

    Seems unlikely if the review was in December 2020.
