Ongoing PIP award with NO review! was created by BeeJay
My PIP award was due for renewal in June 2020 so was expecting the renewal forms shortly (one year early). The brown envelope arrived this morning and I was expecting to be told the review forms would be arriving soon. Couldn't believe what I was reading, had to keep reading over and over. The DWP say that they have looked at my PIP award again and decided that I am entitled to enhanced care and enhanced mobility for an ONGOING period. No forms to fill in, no stress of a face to face assessment. I turned 65 years of age earlier this year so maybe the promise of not making pensioners go through assessents has finally started. I can't quite believe it, I had been so stressed thinking about it. After a dreadful year health wise at least now I don't have the worry of a review hopefully for a long time.

Hello BeeJay,fabulous news so pleased for you. I hope you do not mind my asking but were you previously on enhanced rates for both? I am concerned that they are only offering light touch awards to those on both enhanced rates. Many thanks Lizzie 23

Hi Lizzie 23, yes I was previously on enhanced rate for both but only for last 3 years. I thought with having an end date to my previous award that I would have to have another review. Fingers crossed for you Lizzie

My autistic son [aged 29] has just been awarded an ongoing [DLA to PIP] enhanced award, so it's not just the over 65s
