Hi slim

My understanding of light touch review for claimants In future, PIP claimants whose review would have been scheduled after they had reached State Pension age would instead receive an ongoing award with a light touch review at 10 years.

The change will ensure that those with severe or progressive conditions receive an award which reflects the fact that their condition will not improve.
