TOPIC: PIP award ends after 3 years, process for reapplication?

PIP award ends after 3 years, process for reapplication? 3 months 1 day ago #167722

Hi Gordon

I am back on the subject of reapplication for PIP.

My 3 year award will run out in around 12 weeks I still have not heard from DWP. You advised in the past prior to the AR1 coming on the scene that I should hear no later than 20 weeks before it runs out. Please can you advise what I should do., should I contact the DWP? Is there any news on whether I am likely to be sent an AR1 and any updated news on how the process is working so far.

Many thanks

I would chase the DWP as to what is going on.

It's still not clear when an AR1 is issued in preference to a PIP2, we have had one member complete the process using the new form, they replied "no change" and had their award extended.

Hi Gordon

I spoke to DWP today I was told that the AR1 form is only used for people who did not get a time limited award?

I now have done the first part of a new claim via the phone I am waiting for the PIP 2 form to arrive which could take more than 3 weeks! Please can you advise is there anywhere I can get a copy of the form so I can start working on it and has it changed since I did my first application in March 2014?

I am totally shattered at having to go through this process again, its a living nightmare, I feel physically sick. My condition has not changed and my mental health is fragile.

Thanks for your support, it helps on many levels, I don't feel totally alone.

Hi Gordon

Please can you advise where I may find a copy of the PIP2 application form? is it the same as the one I did in march 2014? I wrote this in a previous message to you just a short while ago but I can't see it so apologies if you have got this twice.

Regards

Well that's clearly not the case as all of the members who have reported receiving the new form have had time limited awards. :ohmy:
