    my mother has been given a 2 year award now we know it should be longer but we just cant be bothered with all the hassle and risking losing the award she has so we will just accept it how it is and go through all this again in 2 years im just using the time to gather much more evidence i have also started a journal for her day to day health and i am writing everything in it

      Thank you. I was firstly given 2 years award then I had to have a review year later. My decision letter hasn't come yet but I was told I was given (possibly 18 months) award by call centre staff. She wasn't sure though. I am glad to keep my award but 18 months is not very common..Good luck to your mother.

    Most people get short awards, the longest you can get is 10 years but very few get this. My first award length was 2 years. This time at review i got 3 years even though it clear stated on the assessment report that my condition will never improve it will only get worse and a longer length award is adviced. Longer i did get but only by 1 year. What makes it worse is they always review you 1 year before the award runs out. When PIP came out they said they would be assessing people more often.

      Hi Denise, I don't mind getting reviewed of course . I always thought 2 years award was the shortest award and never read anyone receiving 18 months before. Well, hopefully my decision letter will explain things better. Thank you.
