    Hi,

    Expect another face to face assessment as most people have them, it's rare to have a paper based decision, even for a review. Did you send evidence to support your claim? They rarely contact anyone for this.

    Good luck.

      Hi,

      The under payments have nothing to do with DLA or PIP.

      They are about those that transferred from Incapacity benefit to ESA many years ago and they have different people contacting claimants that maybe affected by this.

      This will have no affect on PIP new claims or reviews. The waiting times for decisions of these are purely from backlogs concerning other PIP claims and it's always been this way, except the back logs now are much less than they were 4 years ago. With PIP reviews, payments always continue until at least a decision is made on the review, which is why reviews take place 1 year before the award is due to end.
