I’ve received my pip review form which I need to send back by next week, it seems to have taken a while to reach me. So I’m not really sure what to do, my original claim was horrible, my assessment report was full of lies and I scored 0 points, mandatory reconsideration 0 points, then tribunal and I was awarded standard rate for both components. I was awarded for 3 years. So I ended up with a partial diagnosis after my award but due to horrible personal circumstances had to move house a few times which meant my open appointments with the specialist we’re discharged. I went to see my GP to get referred again last year but due to being pregnant they told me they couldn’t refer me until after my pregnancy, I ended up in physio as things were made worse and other conditions occured due to pregnancy which didn’t help. Since my baby was born I’ve been recovering from surgery and also quite poorly so I’m not sure how to fill out my forms as I couldn’t take my medication during pregnancy and due to sorting out a whole host of other health problems since the birth have not yet been able to see my new  gp (who knows nothing of my medical history) to request my referral. So I have no new evidence to send off and am terrified after the last dealings with them that they’ll just cancel my claim and I’ll have to go through the whole awful ordeal again. Should I just select no change for everything and notify them later about any deterioration once I’ve been able to see a specialist

    Hi, how long have you got to get all this back in just 7 days? You can ask for an extension explaining the fact you have just moved and only just registered with your new GP, also contact your consultants and maybe get letters from them. Or as you have suggested tick no change and then except the fact you may have to run the gauntlet again.

      Yes 7 days left, apparently they sent me the forms in January, I knew nothing of this until I got a letter to remind me to send them back. So they resent them and extended but they were delayed by the weather. I honestly don’t think I have it in me to go through it all again it made me so ill last time. I’m also awaiting counselling at the moment, the stress I’ve been under recently has unfortunately taken its toll

    Hi,

    You can ring DWP and they will give you a maximum 14 extra days to fill that form and return it.

    We can't tell you what to tick for those boxes though unfortunately as we don't know your condition. My advice is even if you do tick got worse or stayed the same then you'll most likely need another assessment anyway.

    If you tick no change now and you're awarded and choose to report changes later then the next form you recieve will be the PIP2 form. Again another assessment will be needed for that too. 2 assessments in such a short space of time, think carefully before doing that.

    Either way you're going to need evidence which ever boxes you tick. You can write a diary as evidence, or ask someone that knows you well to write a letter of support for you. You can also ask your GP if there's anything in your medical records that you can use, there will most likely be a charge for this.

    Remember PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect you daily. Anything new then you must have had the condition for at least 3 months and expect it to last a further 9 months at least.

    Good luck.

    I was rejected 2 years ago on MR filled in forms 4 tribunal the got letter 2 weeks having changed their minds and gave me high rate mobility lower rate living. Filled in 2nd form 4 award review in January ticked no change but still sent up date medical reports and still had 2 have an assessment home visit last week. I would advise u 2 tick no change but gather any additional medical reports and u can either send them separately or give them 2 the acessor when u go 4 ur assessment

      Be careful when taking the evidence to an assessment because a lot of HCPs will not accept the evidence during the assessment.

      Yes sometimes they will but a lot of the time they won't. They would would accept them when my daughter had her home assessment recently. I've heard of a lot of others saying exactly the same thing.
