State pension and pip

I have had pip for several years. Last September I received my state pension. A couple of days later I had an assessment form sent out to me which I had to fill in. My question is I was led to believe my pip would automatically continue on state pension. Am I right? I've had 2 text messages to say it's still being processed.

    Yes it will continue for as long as you remain entitled to it. There are long delays for reviews but your existing award will continue until a decision is made on your review.
    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.

    As long as OP completes and returns the form. If they don’t return the form the PIP will end.

    OP, you may be referring to ongoing awards. I would expect that you new decision (the first after reaching pension age) following review will be ongoing but it does depend on the nature of your health issues.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    The review I filled in wasnt the same as the usual ones. I only had to put any changes in my health

    You should still treat all claims a new claim.
