TOPIC: Ongoing PIP award with NO review!

Ongoing PIP award with NO review! 5 months 3 weeks ago #231221

My PIP award was due for renewal in June 2020 so was expecting the renewal forms shortly (one year early). The brown envelope arrived this morning and I was expecting to be told the review forms would be arriving soon. Couldn't believe what I was reading, had to keep reading over and over. The DWP say that they have looked at my PIP award again and decided that I am entitled to enhanced care and enhanced mobility for an ONGOING period. No forms to fill in, no stress of a face to face assessment. I turned 65 years of age earlier this year so maybe the promise of not making pensioners go through assessents has finally started. I can't quite believe it, I had been so stressed thinking about it. After a dreadful year health wise at least now I don't have the worry of a review hopefully for a long time.

Hello BeeJay,fabulous news so pleased for you. I hope you do not mind my asking but were you previously on enhanced rates for both? I am concerned that they are only offering light touch awards to those on both enhanced rates. Many thanks Lizzie 23

Hi Lizzie 23, yes I was previously on enhanced rate for both but only for last 3 years. I thought with having an end date to my previous award that I would have to have another review. Fingers crossed for you Lizzie
