PIP ending, reapplying evidence 1 month 1 week ago #252533

My PIP award ends in January so I have been sent a claim pack. My original award started in 2015 but was ended after my review in 2017, went to tribunal and got it back but was given an end date and not a review date. My question is can I supply the evidence from my original claim(2015) as I have a factual report from my GP and Hospital consultant report or would it be classed as out of date ? I have over 300 pages of paperwork from my tribunal including letters from health professionals and my medical records from 2015 to 2019 ( tribunal date). I am receiving help from a local MH charity filling in the forms and I’m getting a recent care plan from my MH team but I’m also considering getting an updated factual report from my GP (£30). Any advice much appreciated.

Yes, you can use the information from 2015 but you will need to explain why it is still relevant to your conditions and limitations as they are now.

Thank you
Another question should I include my submission from the CAB in 2018 that they wrote for me for my appeal and also what about the decision notice I received from tribunal? If I send some of my medical notes from GP is it ok to underline the relevant parts.

Hi Nasil

Yes, you can include your 2018 CAB award and the decision notice from the tribunal. If you're sending in GP notes just make sure there is nothing in them that could harm your case. You might only underline what you think are the relevant points, but that wouldn't stop anyone reading whatever is included.
