    I think with anything at the moment there are backlogs and limited resources and all you can really do is wait. I’m sure it will be processed as soon as humanly possible.

     It will not start automatically. Have you contacted Carer's Allowance to tell them that PIP is reinstated? You may have to make a new application.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
