Reassessment for PIP

Posted , 4 users are following.

My husband has been awarded PIP which expires the first week of Sep this year.

He was awarded by tribunal and I heard DWP will contact him a few months before the end date fir a fresh application.

I heard 18 weeks before but someone told me it is 12 weeks before.

I would like to know which is a right infomation Also I want to know if the dead line is one month from the date of the letter.

My husband needs my help for the application. I might need an operation around May so I want to avoid the time he has to make the application.

    If Im not mistaken i think as it was awarded through a tribunal then they want contact you, i think you have to make a fresh claim if it was only awarded for one year, Denise will be on soon and will clarify this for both of us

    DWP will contact him about 14 weeks before his award is due to end. He will then need to ring DWP and then they will send him another PIP2 form for a new application. Once he receives the form he'll have 1 month to return it, with all the evidence to support his claim. He can ring DWP for an extra 14 days to return it and they'll happily extend the time.

    If a decision isn't made by the time is award is due to end then payments will stop. Once a decision is made, if successful then he'll be backdated to the date payments stopped.

    Hope this helps.

      You're welcome Alexandria. Yes, a new claim. Although all claims, even reviews should be treated by the claimant as a new claim. Never trust DWP or the health assessment providers to look back at your previous claim.
