    The DWP usually review the claim one year before end date

    Some help on how to complete the form

    https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/sick-or-disabled-people-and-carers/pip/help-with-your-claim/help-with-your-pip-review-form/

    Do be aware of the time frames for completion and how to ask for an extension if you need it.

    When filling out the review form, don't be fooled by the shortened version. You need to put as much information as possible about how your conditions affect you. Evidence will need to be sent with the form as they rare contact anyone for this.



    If you need extra time to return those forms then ring DWP and ask for another 14 days and they'll extend the time for you.



    Expect another face to face assessment as most people have them, even for a review. Your PIP will continue until a decision is made and if success then a new award date will be given. If not successful your PIP will end 4 weeks after a decision's been made regardless of the time left on your existing award. Good luck.

    It may be worth seeing if the Nurses / hospital staff can refer you to a Macmillan Welfare Adviser, who could help you complete the PIP form and, possibly, apply for a grant.

    https://www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/organising/benefits-and-financial-support/benefits-and-your-rights/help-getting-financial-support.html

    When completing the forms make sure you tell them about the time it takes you to do personal care tasks, the fatigue you experience, and how you are afterwards.
    With PIP - if you can't do an activity reliably, to an adequate standard, and in a reasonable time period (i.e. no more than twice as long as the
    maximum period that a non-disabled person would normally take), then you should be assessed as not being able to do that activity and be awarded points.

    This guide (page 73) gives you more info:

    If you have a DS1500 you should hear within a couple of weeks of DWP receiving it, not the normal 6 weeks (plus).

    Good idea to clarify whether DS1500 has been sent by GP. If not ask them if they think it appropriate to issue another one. If necessary, and if you are able, collect it from GP and post a copy to the DWP (they don't need the original). Your hospital consultant or CNS can also write them.
