    Hi skip and welcome

    It is normal for a review to be carried out a year before end date

    Hi everyone, my hubby was given 3yrs  PIP  so when they say a review a yr before then in fact he will be only getting 2 yrs then and not the full 3?  :/  Why do they ask for a review like a yr. earlier then. As it is and the difficulty that many have to go through to get it in the 1st place, seems very unfair to me. Especially for those whos medical conditions dont and never will improve, in fact many get worse with age.

    The reason that they have the option of early review is to maintain the continuity of your award. Rather than your award lapsing they give themselves time in case of any delay

    So they only gave you another year in theory? 
    Mine says my needs may change. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Till end of 2020 so two years, but I don’t mind going for the interviews or submitting loads of paperwork as would rather they check all claims throughly x

    youer review will be a new claim regardless of the three-year award it will be a full assessment again
  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Posts: 3,874Member, Community champion Brian Blessed
    You should check your award letter, each letter has an end date and either a review date or a reapply date.

    Review dates are a year ahead of the end date, a 2020 end date will have a 2019 review date. This is to allow time for a new decision to be made before the award ends. You might receive a AR1 short reveiw form or a PIP2 full claim form. Either form can trigger a new f2f assessment. Once a new decision is made your old award ceases and the new decision is put into payment.

    If you have a shorter award you will probably have a reapply date 13-14 weeks before the end date. You might not get a reminder so be prepared to start a new claim.

    Isn’t it ridiculous and another waste of money.
    Just had my report ( not final decision) and the assessor has said 2 years.
    bearing in mind I was on lifetime DLA.
    ive had uncontrolled epilepsy for 40yrs.
    apparently the nurse thinks I’m going to make a dramatic recovery once I’ve seen the neurologist in June.
       It will no doubt be another report to send to them next year.
    lets just hope this stupid system changes for the better soon

    Have you worked out your possible award from the report ?
    It is likely that any award will be for three years with a review in two years as per the HCP recomendation

    The only awards that are only 10 years or over unless a change in CC are On-Going awards, any others stating 10 years or less will be subject to a review a year before it's end, as you can see in my screenshot where highlighted is where it will state these two.



    Where it states: (We will) is where it will state a date when likely to be reviewed.
    This Governments gone way to far. Now let's help Debbie Abraham's and help get this sorted and the Conservatives to stop this crap against the disabled. See more of her story's on her tweet page here https://mobile.twitter.com/Debbie_abrahams and let's get behind her and Support her in the fight for the rights of disabled. Together we must fight and we can conquer.
