    PIP review experiences wanted 13th Jan 18 at 5:10 PM
    I have sent my PIP review form off with relavent paperwork and i would like to get some of your experiences with this process.
    Has anyone had an increase/decrease of benefit without a F2F?
    General outcomes for example have people had to go to tribunal etc.
    Thanks

    It's rare to have a paper based decision, even at review. I would advice you to expect an assessment.

    The process is the same as the first time, the only difference with a review is the shortened form. Times vary depending on back log in your area.

    My review was just over a year ago, i had another assessment. Time from sending off form to decision was approx 4 months. Some wait long, while other less. Good luck.

    I had a review this yr. Was shocked when I got the same award as before and didn't have to have a face to face.
    I also didn't supply any evidence baring my writing getting worse. (Have eds and when I write for a whole my writing gets really bad as fingers and thumbs start to pop out.)
    I don't know wether when I had my 1st review I had a face to face at home with a lovely nurse who read about my condition and when she started some of the tests went to push down on my wrist as I push up and my wrist dislocated so she never tested anything else. So don't know if she wrote up a good review.
    I also went from never being able to get dla to being able to get pip. Condition has got worse as I get older.
