    @marksmith In answer to your question those people who PIP award is up for renewal are having the award extended due to assessments not taking place due to covid.

    As your letter states you have had the award extended to allow for this. But as explained they can review this at anytime before the new award ends.

    You do not need to do anything you will still be paid until this award is due to end and they will get in touch with you when they are able to re assess
