    @James12th and welcome.

    It may seem that you had been given a fixed PIP term award, as most will or would have heard before now of a award review.

    Most normal award review dates was done a year before an award was to end, see if you're original decision was fixed, but it had now been dropped down by the DWP decreased to 6 months beforehand instead when you would have been sent an AR1 review form.

    My advice and is to phone the PIP helpline and ask when your review will be due. I think you would have heard by now?

    If you don't contact them you may well find your award will end. Good luck.

    Hi,

    Are you sure it's due to end in January 2020 and not January 2021? If you were awarded by DWP you will have a review. If you were awarded by a Tribunal then you should have been contacted 14 weeks before the award is due to end.

    Please take another look at your award letter to make sure you haven't mistaken the dates.

    If it is January 2019 then your award will end on that date and you need to ring them on Monday morning.

    Is it true from may 2018 you don’t have to pay for your medical reports from the doctor I saw this on YouTube about pip and esa. Any advise would be great from tricia x

    It's free to request digital copies of your medical records, if this is what you mean. If you require paper copies then they could be a charge. If you ask your GP for a supporting letter then there may also be a charge for this.
