    I'm sorry but i don't understand what you mean by this. Are you asking about the length of time your PIP was awarded for?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @vicdon :) Do you mean that the award letter says how long your award will be for?

    Do you mean they CAN'T (HAVEN'T) awarded it for a long period and it is a short timed award?

    My thoughts on this is it could be that they've scored enough points for an award but if their condition is not expected to last for at least 9 months then there will be no award.
    We won't know for sure unless they come back and tell us what they mean.
