TOPIC: Do I or don't I?

Do I or don't I? 4 weeks 2 days ago #236048

Hi

I know its probably my decision but would be interested on your thoughts.

I am in receipt of PIP mid care standard mobility following a move for high rate on both DLA.

My conditions have worsened since (my award is due for review 2022) and I have also been diagnosed with a rare condition/disease which is more so debilitating and for which there is no cure or any real treatment.

Do i apply due to a change or wait for the review?

Would i have to fo for another assessment?

TIA

Hi Oscarab

If you choose to inform the DWP it will be treated as a change of circumstances - especially if you have been diagnosed with something new. That would normally trigger a review and a new assessment. Just be aware that you need to have had the new condition for three months before PIP can be awarded for it. The DWP do say that change of medical condition should be reported. Some people do and others wait until a review.
