PIP 1043 Award Review Form

CollyoftheWobblesCollyoftheWobbles Member Posts: 19 Courageous
Hi All
So the DWP decided to send me an early xmas gift, in the shape of a Award Review form. It's a 1043
I have never seen a form like this in my life, and it is a lot different from my normal PIP form.
It's asking for contributions from carers, diaries and lots of others. But dismissing GP letters and such.
Has anyone ever recived one of these forms, or has experience filling them out?

Would be grateful for any knowledge of this new form.
Thanks
Shel x

    Hi,

    Its just the usual PIP review form. GP letters are never the best evidence to send to support any claim because a GP will very rarely know how your conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors. These forms are sent about 6 months before an existing award is due to end.

    When filling in the form you should put as much information as possible about how your conditions affect you, adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    The evidence you send should state how your conditions affect you.

    Expect another face to face assessment because most people have them, it's rare to have a paper based assessment. If you don't have enough time to return the form you can ring to request a further 14 days. Good luck.

    Thanks Poppy.
    Do you know if this form is instead of filling out a full re claim form in 6 months then?
    Or do you then have to do that one too?

    No problem. It will be instead of the full PIP2 form. I'm assuming your PIP ends in about 6 months, is that correct?

    I think so yes, they never gave me an exact date but I know it’s up some time next year some time.

    The end date of your award will be on your award letter at the end. It will have 2 dates, a review one and an end date. Reviews used to take place 1 year before the awatd ends but that changed to 6 months before.

    Once a decision's been made on this review, if you're awarded successfully you'll have a new award date. If you're not awarded then your PIP will end, regardless of the date of the current award you have.

    A PIP 1043 is essentially a PIP 2 with less space in terms of most of the questions.

    I have just received the same letter and the forms have to be in by January 6 and the letter only came 2 days ago

    I’m so sorry you got it too. With so little time to fill it and over the Christmas post.
    If you ask they will give you a 14day extension to fill it out x
