It's possible that it was chosen for audit, the Assessment Providers select a certain number of reports at random, it is also possible that the report was received after a couple of days but it took several weeks to be logged onto the DWP systems.

Some members have been told by the DWP that a Decision could be ten weeks.

The first thing you need to do is to check whether this deterioration will reasonably score the extra points your wife needs for a higher award, have a look at our PIP Claim guide for details of the criteria that she will need to meet.

If you are happy that she does then you need to write the DWP office dealing with her claim notifying them of a Change of Circumstances due to her deteriorated condition, if you can afford it send the letter using a Tracked post so that you have proof of delivery, the date of the letter should be used to set the start date of any new award.

Be aware, reporting a Change will result in a full reassessment of her claim, a new PIP2 and almost certainly a face to face assessment, the new Decision will supersede her existing award, whatever it is.
