    I'm not aware  of any other way of contacting the DWP/PIP , you can complete  the pip2 online, but you would if the PIP enquiry help line can't help you Would have to ring the  New claims Number , like you did to get the PIP 2 sent to you
    PIP2 online forms are only available to certain people if invited to apply this way. If it's a review form (AR1) then these are not available online.
    The helpline is the same number as the new claims number.
    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.

    @tomm quite correct, my apologies. It’s been a long day, didn’t sleep good last night and have a terrible headache this evening. 
    I believe with the online form there’s a certain amount of claimants offered this option but can’t remember how many per week.

    I've been waiting 30 minutes all I want is extra time to get help with the form. It's a new pip claim. I only got the form yesterday and they want it back by the 23rd

    The best time to ring PIP is usually as soon as they open at 9am.
