TOPIC: What to expect from PIP 'review' assessment?

What to expect from PIP 'review' assessment? 2 months 1 week ago #223978

I have a couple of questions relating to PIP and thought I would keep it to this one thread, firstly what is the difference between the PIP assessment for a review and the original assessment? Or will they just be identical?

Also, I sent back my review forms at the start of October and have heard absolutely nothing since, PIP has just been being paid in as normal. I presume if the award was just going to be renewed then I would have heard from the DWP by now, so its more likely I will be getting called for another assessment at some point? Or have I got that wrong.

The only significant difference in the assessments will be the assessor having a copy of your PIP2 and the report from your original assessment, the interview itself will be the same subject to the variations from one assessor to another.

I would check with the Assessment Provider for your area, I would have expected you to have heard about whether a face to face is required or not by now.

What to expect from PIP 'review' assessment? 3 weeks 6 days ago #226661

I had a text today stating 'Thanks for sending us your how your disability affects you form, we may need you to attend a consultation, we'll contact you again if we do'.
So months and months later it seems they have got round to looking at my review and looks like I will more than likely have to attend a face 2 face, this has now filled me with dread!
I want to prepare myself so I have the best possible chance of keeping my award which is just the standard care.
Do you have any guides specifically for the assessment?

The PIP Claim guide has sections on the assessment and the questions you are likely to be asked.
