PIP REVIEW 1 year 3 months ago #236039

I had to fill in a PIP review form to be returned by 25th August. I took Gordon's advice about still including a lot of information rather than just state "no change". I was very stressed about it as I have just lost my Mum and it couldn't have come at a worse time.
I sent it back recorded delivery on 12th August and got a text from DWP on 14th August saying they had received it.
Today I received a letter saying they hadn't yet had my form so in a panic I rang them. I am now in a state of shock.
Not only had they received it, they had made their decision by 15th August (so 2 days!) and a letter is on it's way saying I have again been awarded Enhanced Rate for both Mobility and Care until 2025!. I won't actually believe it until the letter arrives but the lady at DWP checked and rechecked and was astonished herself at the quick decision.
The relief is huge and I'm so glad I took Gordon's advice and spent a lot of time on the form even though it was the last thing I felt like doing.
Thank you!!!!

Hi Jasmine3234

Many congratulations on your PIP award. Great to hear, especially after the loss of your Mum.
Glad you were able to push through and complete the form.

But to get a decision in 2 days! Is that a record?

Hi Jasmine3234

I think it must be a record. Pretty impressive! (I think a lot of people will be feeling a little envious right now!)

To be honest, I was so so relieved and I still won't believe it until I actually see the letter myself. But then I read other recent posts, so then I felt really bad.
However, I did spend a lot of time filling the form in and sending extra evidence as advised on this site, so I shouldn't feel bad should I ? :(

Hi Jasmine3234

You shouldn't feel bad at all. Your hard work paid off.
