    PIP review period? 16th Oct 16 at 8:41 AM
    I got an 18 month award in June, backdated to March.

    I'd read on here to expect a review a year before my award expired but haven't heard a thing from the DWP and I only have 11 months left. Should I call the DWP to find out what's going on or are they less likely to send for a review so soon after a tribunal?

    Dwp can - and do in some cases - review pip awards at anytime during the life of the claim and have been reviewing a year before your Pip ends but don't have to.

    Do nothing at all unless you really want a review or your circumstances have changed.

    I had a tribunal in 2014 and the month after I got a renewal form

    I don't think there is any set process

    I had my PIP, awarded till 07/09/17, they said they wouldn't review me until after 07/09/16 on the 10/09/16 I got my renewal pack

    That was scanned on first week in october and now awaiting a f2f date

    I wouldn't stress, maybe give them a call at the 2 month point if you haven't heard anything, but for now I would just leave it unless as diary says your circumstances have changed
