    That's great news Claire, well done.

    Yes if there's no review date this means that your award will run until 2020. They'll contact you 3 months before and tell you to re-apply if you want to continue with the PIP. You'll need to ring PIP and ask for those PIP2 forms to be sent to you. These won't be the shortened version, i'm afraid. It will be those long forms like you had to fill in the first time. Sadly some people get awards with end dates, this is a fairly new thing. You have 3 years so for now relax.

    Well done Claire, 

    got my forms through and it's a daunting task trying to get the wording right.

    keep looking at mine and putting it away as I'm struggling to fill it in.

    have a week now to fill it in and send it back.

    just hope it's enough to keep my award.

    any help would be great if you could spare the Time. 😊
