    Your payments will continue until a decision is made on your review. We have members here that are still waiting a year after returning their review forms. There's huge backlogs so the wait is not unusual. Expect another assessment because most have them even for reviews. Once an appointment becomes available you will be contacted.
    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.

    I understand from the above atet you have received and returned the review form. My understanding is that PIP claims are being extended as necessary while reviews are processed. What was the last end date you were given for your existing award?
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
