TOPIC: Thank you

Thank you 2 months 2 weeks ago #233342

Hi Gordon

After over 3 years of constant worry, waiting for the invitation to apply for PIP to drop through the letterbox, I finally attended my DLA to PIP assessment in May 2019. The female nurse who carried out the assessment was lovely. After the assessment I requested a copy of the HP's report. The assessor had recommended 11 points for care and 12 for moving around. The assessor wrote that she expects my condition to worsen and recommended a review in 3 years. I received the decision makers letter this week and I was awarded standard care and higher mobility for 4 years from July 2019 until June 2023. It states on the letter that I will be called for review after May 2022. I will be 66 in October 2022 and eligible for my state pension.
I am so thankful for my award and could not have done it without the information from B&W and Gordon on the forum. Thank you

I forgot to ask.
As my award ends after my retirement age of 66, will I be called for a review? or will I be called for a review because the letter states that I will be called for review after May 2022 even though I am 66 in October 2022.

Your award will be reassessed sometime on or after May 2022, we are still waiting to hear how the Government will handle existing PIP claims renewing after the claimant has reached State Retirement Age.
