PIP Assessment and Payments
Wondering if someone can help me.
In April 2021 I was awarded PIP, enhanced living rate with the standard mobility rate for a long term health condition and I am unable to get treatmemt on the NHS. My PIP covers the cost of my treatment that I get privately.
When the award letter came through it stated that I would be having an assessment in Novemeber 2023 but I have yet to recieve the paperwork and/or appointment details for this assessment. The letter also stated that my payments are awarded until April 2024 but nothing has been said as to what's going to happen after this date.
So if I haven't had an assessment, and from what I can see online there seems to be a big back log of claims assessments, will my payments continue until I do eventually get an assessment or will it automatically stop and I have to reapply? My condition is considered long term and for some it really is a life long disability. My treatment is still on going and without the PIP I cannot afford treatment, which in turn could cause my condition to get worse.
So do I need to do anything or do I just continue as usual and wait for PIP to contact me?
Many thanks for reading and any advise offered.
