TOPIC: PIP extended

PIP extended 1 month 2 weeks ago #246905

I received my PIP in October 2015 for 5 years, I was starting to get worried as I knew I would be getting the forms shortly. Imagine my amazement when yesterday I received a letter from DWP stating that as I had reached state pension age in January 2020 it had been extended to December 2024, 10 years from when I was awarded it.

Just wanted to reassure all those who are due a renewal that if you are receiving pip when you get to state pension age, then maybe they are just automatically extending it, nothing in the letter mentioned Coronavirus. Anybody else had theirs extended without doing anything?

I did. I was expecting a form around April to reapply, mine was till Oct 2020 ( 2 year award ) although I was 67 when I moved DLA/PIP. I’m 69 now with review now 2028, without having to fill form in. It’s interesting it’s a ten year award to 2028 but back dated from 2018, this is supposed to arrive out of Amber Rudd direction to DWP. Seems more like a mistake from the beginning. Hope you have some peace of mind now.
