TOPIC: Pip review

Pip review 3 weeks 18 hours ago #247888

I'm currently filling in a pip review form. I filled in my original claim form using the guides from this site with lots of information, using extra sheets of paper.
I've been told by a couple of advisors experienced with pip claims, that the key to a review is to keep the answers simple if there is no change with perhaps a few sentences to pretty much just say there is no change.
Is this good advice?
Or should I go into greater detail like on my first claim form.

Hi Jonny5

This is what our guide says:

If there has been no change in how hard or easy you find an activity then we consider that you
should still give detailed information about the difficulties you have with each activity in the same
way that we advise you complete the PIP2 ‘How your disability affects you’ form..
We’ve certainly heard from claimants who have stated ‘no change’ and had their PIP award
renewed at the same rate.
However, we have also heard from people who have stated ‘no change’ throughout and were still
called for a face-to-face assessment. At that assessment the health professional may, or may not,
have a copy of your award review form or of your most recent PIP2 ‘How your disability affects you’
So, there is a real risk that if you just state ‘no change’ you could end up at an assessment where
the health professional has very little information about how your condition affects you. You will then
be entirely reliant on their skill at asking the right questions and recording your evidence accurately.
