It is a fact that your renewal for PIP usually occurs one year before the actual end date.
The good news is that the PIP renewal form has changed and is now supposedly simpler to complete.
They are going to use the old application form plus any new information and evidence that you send relevant to any changes you advise the DWP about.
The idea is that they want to avoid having to do so many face to face re-assessments and can make a decision based on the old application plus any new evidence/changes.
This sounds like a good thing. At the moment you have to complete the PIP2 form on the basis that a re-assessment is to be treated as a wholly new claim.
Then there is a scenario, what happens if you fail to get any award following the original face to face assessment, the original PIP2 form and the evidence that you sent in? If then on appeal you are made an award by the Tribunal, should you rely on the original PIP2 as good and valid evidence?
Effectively if the DWP are following this idea, they could well turn round and say - 'no new award' especially if you tick all of the boxes on the new form saying that there has been no change to your care needs or mobility issues
