Hi All.i went to welfare Rights to help with p.i.p review forms they said they would post them for me. It been a few weeks however I got a letter Saturday 9th saying the two hadn't got the Forms the letter was Dated the 1st and had to be in by 12th worried I could use my p.i.p due the slow post if the forms got lost in the post

    The letter you received is automatically generated and took 8 days for you to receive it. In that time they could have received your PIP form. You need to ring Welfare Rights to ask if they have posted it and then ring DWP to ask if they've received it. We can't answer either of those questions.

    You need to check with Welfare Rights taht they have posted the forms.
    There re long delays with processing of post by DWP so most likely you have received an automated letter but the forms are sitting at the mail processing entering waiting to b scanned and uploaded to DWP system
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
