Congratulations on getting the Decision revised.

Are you sure that it says "we will not be able to pay you after 2030" as this is not a phrase I would expect to see on a Decision Letter.

If it is a ten year award then it should say that there is an end date in 2029 and that they will look at your claim in 2018.

If it is an On-Going award then there should be no end date and it should say that they will look at it sometime after 2029.

Hello Gordon, I have received 2 letters from DWP dated 1 day apart,first letter does read I can’t award you pip from may 2030, then the other letter reads I can award you pip from may 2019 to may 2030 ,it then states they will contact me after may 2029 to see if my needs have changed, so can I safely think I have got a 10 year award? Which is great news ( I just can’t see any point why they should send 2 letters out

If one says "can't" and one says "can" then it sounds as if the DM did not proof check one of the letters before it was sent for printing and the mistake was only picked up later.

I would still check with the DWP that a ten year or On-Going award is in place and which it is.
