Could sending further information about how my condition affects me make me lose my current award?

I get pip standard allowance daily living but have recently been diagnosed with Crohn's disease
If I send off information about how chrons disease affects me could I possibly lose my standard allowance I already have.

    Diagnosis of an illness is not relevant as PIP is all about how you are affected by any health conditions. You first need to think about whether, since you were last assessed, there has been a change in the impact your health has on your ability to do the specific tasks that are assessed as part of the PIP process. If there has been a change you then need to think about whether the change is sufficient to change the point score that might apply and would the change in score result in a change in the level of award. Only if there has been sufficient change in your difficulties to justify a change in the award is it worth advising DWP.

    If you do report a change it will prompt a reassessment and it is possible that the new award will be less than existing - but you can of course challenge that through the normal processes.

    Thanks for sharing this invoice you have also put it on other posts as well some which are old 

    If would be much better for you to just create a new post of your own rather than putting it on unrelated old posts

    Multiple posting like this is spam and completely clogs up the forum.
