I received a letter about my pip to say it's been extended to 25th March 2021 because of covid 19 a few days later I got a 25 page form to fill in. Im a little confused because on the form it states that I do not need to fill in form and we would be in touch later do I or don't I need to fill in forms iiiii John

    HI and welcome,

    Yes confusing indeed. We could only guess what you should do so i would advise you to ring them Monday morning. Do be aware though that phone lines are extremely busy at the moment so it could take a while for them to answer.

    HI,

    I would also advise you to ring DWP to ask whether you need to fill out the form and return it. Even though your award has been extended, reviews for PIP have now restarted again. Face to face assessments are still suspended. It's will either be a telephone assessment or paper based.

    Ah ok then you will need to fill out the form with as much information as possible and make sure it's returned. If you need extra time to return it then ring DWP for an extention.
