    Personal Independence Payment (PIP) reviews  

    This month the Department for Work and Pensions have started automatically extending existing PIP claims awaiting review by up to 12 months. This will happen 35 days before the award end date.  

    The extension provides greater certainty for claimants and in particular help with continuing to access other support, e.g. a blue badge for parking.  

    From 31 October 2022, a letter will be sent automatically to claimants confirming continuing entitlement for up to 12 months. Until then, claimants will be updated by text message that their award reviews have been extended and will remain in payment. 

    Anyone needing written confirmation before 31 October 2022 can contact the helpline on 0800 121 4433 and DWP will issue a notification of entitlement. Otherwise, claimants do not need to contact DWP unless their circumstances change.  

    In line with the DWP's usual process, claims may be reviewed before their new end date and if so, DWP will write to claimants to inform them.

    PIP payments will be received as normal until completion of the review of a claim.

    If the reivew is not competed by the extended award date, DWP may extend the end date of the PIP award again and will write to claimants to tell them about this.
