    Welcome to the community @honeybee90 :) How are you doing today? 

    Would you be able to tell us a little bit more about what the letter says, and what you're feeling unsure about? 

    Just to let you know, I've moved you post into our PIP category and renamed it so that it'll be easier for other members to find.

    It may be a letter advising you that due to a change in the law (usually following a court ruling) DWP have to review whether or not your PIP award is correct. Just read the letter carefully and check whether or they are asking you to do anything - usually if they are reviewing awards you don't need to do anything.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
