TOPIC: PIP - Advising of changed circumstances

PIP - Advising of changed circumstances 1 week 6 days ago #248094


If I want to inmform PIP of health changes, can this only be done by phone?

Will I have to go through an assessment process again?

My condition has worsened, I have additional diagnoses of other conditions and my situation has changed to needing more help etc.

Now when I first applied I was given 10 on the mobility side, even though I am (and was) unable to follow an unfamiliar route without someone with me or with an aid - which they gave me 0 on even after an appeal - if I phone them to give my changes, will all this has to be gone through again - I am still under this criteria - will they relook at this?

If they are our rights, why do we have to fight for them?

If you report a Change then you should do so in writing as the date of your letter will be used to set the start date of any new award, Ideally, send it using a Track'd post so that you have proof of delivery.

Before you report a Change you should be certain that you would reasonably qualify for a higher award, not all deterioration or even new conditions will result in your scoring the points you need for a higher award. See our PIP Claims guide for the criteria that you will need to make.

If you report a Change then you will be sent a new PIP2 to complete and it is almost certain that you will be required to have some sort of assessment, your evidence will need to be very clear and compelling for a Paper Based Review to be done.
