TOPIC: PIP reassessment due

PIP reassessment due 6 months 2 weeks ago #229931

Canada

A Fixed Term award is exactly that, it ends on the end date whatever might be done in terms of a renewal.

I know of one person on the forum whose claim was being renewed (not reassessed) who had problems but they started the process late so it wasn't surprising.

I'm not aware of anybody having problems with a reassessment. The six months is new and I have only seen a couple of members report it but even with the current delays in the system, it should be possible to complete the process in 26 weeks.

Thanks Canada for posting. We only know about these changes when members post. DWP said exactly the same to me, ie will be October but as an after thought added but it could be anytime. At first I was relieved but now my anxiety is through the roof as I’m dreading the postman every morning.

Well after 6 months of dread the brown envelope has arrived dated 5.10.19, 6 months to the date for PIP review (PIP 1043), giving less than 3 weeks to complete. I am now full of stress & anxiety making my symptoms & pain so much worse. As I have got a copy of the original form would it be prudent to send a copy and put in the boxes on the review form if things haven’t changed to refer to the original answers? The reason I ask is that some members have stated the decision maker didn’t have a copy of the original PIP claim form so if I had to do an MR I could prove they had been given all the original information which they had used for my original award, as I understand they now have to explain why you have got better if they reduce your awards. I would obviously send in an index sheet referring to each answer.
My other question is how long is a tribunal decision allowed in law if it is still valid ? The case was in Benefits & Work 16.6.2009. Case CDLA/0217/2009. Thank you.

We cannot recommend writing "no change" even if you supply the previous claim form as it leaves you dependent on theose assessing you finding the relevant information, you are also referring them to old information and whilst you maintain that nothing has changed it will still be viewed as old information.

What you can do is copy information from your old form onto the new one, updating it where appropriate.

The UTT Decision you reference is for DLA you cannot rely on it being relevant to PIP, the claimant in question was found to be "virtually unable to walk" in the Decision, this term has no meaning for PIP.

PIP reassessment due 2 weeks 11 minutes ago #239878

I sent my completed review forms back along with evidence etc on Friday by recorded delivery. It had to be back by 5th Nov. I checked Royal Mail tracker and it was signed for at 4.30am today. Will I get a text from DWP to say it has been rec’d and if so roughly when? I’m really concerned as read others have had their PIP stopped as DWP are having delays with their post and it is up to the claimant to then prove they have sent their claim within time limit.

I would not rely on their texting you, I would call them to confirm receipt of the form.
