    It's the same process as the first time you applied. Another assessment is highly likely and there's no timescales for this. Did you send in evidence to support your claim? This will be needed even for a review. Once you've had the assessment if a decision goes in your favour you'll have a new award date. If a decision doesn't go in your favour your money will stop 4 weeks after the decision is made.

    I dont get it sorry Ive never had one before just a few questions

    why do they send them out in the first place and my money has been stopped already and they just keep saying they are waiting for the form i sent back a few weeks ago

    and why would I need to go for another assessment I only had just over 12 months ago Im so confused and not getting any answers off them when I ring up so if everything iss ok with my review form will they reinstate payments and that means I wont have to go for an assessment

    And finallyalong with other health problems Ive got stage 5 kidney disease with my kidneys functioning at 5 percent and I am on heamodialysis 3 times a week for 4 hours at a time will that have any impact on my claim I know it did with esa it wasnt actually my fault about the form they sent it to my old addresss will that not also go in my favour because I couldnt fill it out if I didnt receive it and thats why they stopped it because I didnt fill it out

    The reason why they stopped your money was most probably because you didn't return the first form they sent you in time. When you move house you need to tell everyone your new address. I'm only guessing this is why your money was stopped. To know for sure then you'll have to ring PIP and ask them.

    Your money may not re-start until a new decision's been made on this one. Again you'll need to ring PIP and ask them.

    PIP reviews are done 1 year before the award is due to end. Most peole have another assessment, unfortunately.

    As for your health conditions i'd advice sending in the evidence with the form. Whether an assessment is needed will depend on the evidence you send but it's rare to have a paper based decision.

    I'd concentrate on filling that form in and returning it will all your evidence.

    They will only text a claimant if a mobile number was put on the form. Some don't put then down. If they don't put them down, DWP don't text.

    Having said that i put my mobile number down on my daughters PIP form but never recieved a text saying they'd recieved it. I just got a letter for a face 2 face about 10 days after the form had been sent. I didn't even get a text saying they had all the info they needed.

    If the answer is no to those then the only thing you can do is fill that form out again to re-send it, this time through recorded delivery.

    Did you send evidence with the form? If so, i hope it was copies only.

    You will still need evidence even though it's a review. Don't automatically assume that as there's no changes you'll be given another award. So many people lose their awards at review, even with no changes. Don''t leave anything to chance and send evidence with you form. Good luck.
