TOPIC: PIP Ongoing Period

PIP Ongoing Period 6 months 5 days ago #237909

Hi at last the brown envelope arrived, and with trembling fingers I opened it, and to our delight my husband received enhanced both the mobility and care, (DLA he received middle rate care and higher rate mobility) and this was down to all the excellant literature and the help on this forum which help me fill the form in for my husband who is registered as blind.
Just one query, does ongoing mean no more assessments?

Hi Sonia

Congratulations on your husband's award. That's great. Ongoing means he will not be assessed for another ten years, and when he does it should be a 'light touch review'. What light touch means in practice is not yet clear.
