    Quick PIP Question! 18th May 19 at 1:21 PM
    Hi,

    If I ask for a review and report my condition has gotten worse.. do they stop your payments until they can reassess you?

    Thanks!

    Have you had a look at the descriptors to see where you could score those extra points for a higher award? A worsening of condition doesn't mean you'll score more points.


    Reporting a change of circumstances means they'll send you more forms and another face to face assessment will most likely be needed.



    When is your existing award due for renewal?

    Yes, I know. I'm all prepared.

    Was initially waiting for the review.. have been holding out for a while but I'm sick of waiting tbh. I'm sure my award end is March 2020.

    It does, thank you.

    I've obviously read all the pip scare stories but I've only ever had positive experiences with it! Have always got what I wanted on first assessment.
