    Hi,

    Reviews now take place 6 months before the award is due to end so it will be sometime in November you'll receive review forms.

    When you receive those form you should treat it as a new claim and 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.

    Expect a face to face assessment because most people have them. Evidence will be needed to support your claim so i'd advise you to start to gather some now and then you'll be prepared once the forms arrive.

    Basically it's the same process the first time you applied.

    @cb1976 anything that has information about you, and how you function on a day to day basis, PIP is based on functional tests.

    If you have diagnosis for any of your medical conditions will help,  but it's not about your diagnosis as functional evidence is better.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    You could report a change in circumstances now @cb1976 , which would trigger an early reassessment, or you could just wait for your review papers.

    There is an obligation to report any improvement in your condition which might mean you are being paid too much benefit. However, it is difficult to say there is any obligation to report deterioration; at most you are denying yourself additional benefit. Nobody is obliged to claim benefit if they do not want to.

    As you'll receive your review forms very soon then my advice it to wait. A worsening of condition doesn't mean you'll be awarded a higher rate.
