    Pip Award question. 11th Aug 18 at 1:46 PM
    Hello Folks,


    I have been award standard mobility until june 24 I think, but says I may be contacted after june 23, if I do get contacted around that in 23 and a new decision is made, does it come into force around that time, or do I have to wait until juner 24?


    Many thanks for any clarrification.

    It is common for the review of a PIP award to commence a full year before the end date. The new decision comes into effect immediately.

    If you are contacted in June you will then have to complete a new health form and possibly have another face to face assessment so it will be several months before a decision is made. Any change in your benefit will take effect from a date close to the decision date, not from the date you were contacted. The change will not coincide exactly with the decision date either as the DWP also factor in your normal payment dates when determining the date the change should apply from.

    As in your other thread you were asking advice about MR/Tribunal. If you did proceed with this and the decision goes in your favour then the new award length of time will overrule this one.

    Thanks everybody, advice very much appreciated, as I am dealing with both PIP and ESA at the moment, so getting some pointers and advice on here in so helpful.

    Can I just ask,

    Say I did ask for an MR on PIP to get that one point that would take me up to 8, I already got 10 for mobility. I do realise when I ak for for an MR I could looose the mobility as well, though the odds are that I wont, but with my luck, who knows!

    If I did loose everything both at MR and tribunal, and was then to reapply for PIP later on, do they take previous PIP decisons into consideration, in other words the PIP manager/decision maker might well look at previous claims?

    I do know that when I apllied for PIP as it was a managed migration from DLA they did ask when I rang up first time, whether I want DLA evedience to be included in PIP claim.

    Thanks once again to all you good people.

    If the MR decision remained the same, and it's likely it may then there's no risk of taking it to Tribunal. If the Tribunal decided to take away or lower an existing award then they would have to let you know before the hearing. This will then give you the chance to cancel the Tribunal and keep what award you already have.

    Surely the Tribunal will not know what their decision may or will be until the hearing is taking place (except in exceptional circumstances). I know there is upper tier ruling that tribunals must advise claimants if they are considering taking away points already awarded but I had assumed that this would be during a hearing so that the claimant can make argument relating to the point being considered or presumably ask for a deferral.

    No, it's not for during the hearing, they have to notify the claimant before the hearing takes place.

    If you can point me at the ruling or regulation that sets this out that would be really helpful.
