    Hi there 

    If you won at tribunal 14 weeks prior to award end date you should get notified you need to reapply 

    After a tribunal win it is classed as a new claim so if you dont hear you need to chase up advice is to apply 6 months b4 to ensure complete by time award ends

    Don't understand what you meant by this.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi @ella1992 - & welcome to the community. Many people have had their PIP claims extended, mine included, due to Covid-19. Whilst you probably won't hear from the DWP until 2024, they can review a claim at any time. I'm sorry this is causing you to worry, but try & put it out of your mind for now, but, as advised, if you haven't heard 6 months before it's due to end, give them a call on 0800 121 4433.
