TOPIC: What is a paper assessment as such?

What is a paper assessment as such? 2 months 3 days ago #246345

I am getting mixed up. I sent my PIP renewal off in Jan with my PIP currently ending in June. With it lots of Consultants letters , hospital discharge letters etc.
I had heard nothing so rang up DWP asking for an update. The lady informed me it was with the assessors and they would contact me about a telephone review or an award. She did also say if it was not completed by June they MIGHT extend the award.
Surely if they could not complete the assessment in 6 months, 3 of them before CVirus was really an issue here they would have to extend my award.
I don’t understand who is getting an automatic 6 months extension?? I’m really confused.

From March 24th 2020 for 3 months, until June 24th 2020 no reviews will be carried out.

If your PIP is due to expire you will continue to be paid at your current rate.
