Award Letter

On my PIP award letter it says "we will contact you after 27th September 2021 to make sure you are receiving the right level of PIP ".
Does this mean they will send me the forms out September 2020, one year before as is the usual case ? There is no other mention in the letter of when or how long the award is for.

    Hi,

    If it definitely says "we will contact you after 27th Sept 2021" then that's when you'll be contacted. If you were awarded by DWP rather than a Tribunal then your award must be until 2022.

    Poppy, yes the award was from DWP. They had until 22/03/19 to send their papers to tribunal but contacted me last week saying they had looked at my MR again and made me an offer of reinstating my original award and stopping the appeal.
    I was satisfied with that so accepted the offer.
