    Hi there 

    Did you get the full pip2 form 

    Is your award due to end 

    If it is a review it can take around 6 months to complete the whole process 

    After the forms are sent there will be an assessment b4 it goes to decision maker 

    If you are unsuccessful your payments will end but you can then appeal 

    Hope this helps

    No it is a different form for a review than new claim 

    Did the form have all the sections on asking if your condition had changed ? 

    If so this is a review form but best advice is to complete it as if it is new claim and give as much detail about how you are affected by the descriptors

    Like I said it can take 6 months depends on backlogs 

    You will get an appointment for an assessment next
