Have obtained friend's permission, blanked out his details, scanned form, uploaded it to my Dropbox account and sent an email attaching an access link to 'office' AT benefitsandwork.co.uk.

Hope this helps you to help us.

Many thanks for doing this.

PIP making sure your award is right 4 months 5 days ago #164300

Hi there,
I have received this form (PIP 1043) too on 18th July to return by 8th August. It is not quite the same as your sample one and does not have my national insurance on each page - only a q code box. It says you have to write the national insurance on each page extra you write so presumably the Q box is your NI number. To be safe I will put it on each page of the form too.
It says 'If there is no change, (to a condition within each section) you can move onto the next question'. I am extremely worried that if I fill in no change that they will not refer to my previous PIP form. There is also an added complication because I have had a back fusion op since filling in my last PIP (November) and am now in a lot less pain but still have trouble because of a newly discovered coccyx problem. I will therefore have to describe all this. I was also never certain if I should have told them about the operation but figured not as there is a longish recovery time. Is it just safer to put no change to everything (except the mobility section) or do I go into detail about what is slightly more worse? I would appreciate anyones input if they are filling this in too. I haven't got much longer to fill it in - never mind trying to get evidence
thank you

Hi Lindag,

As you know, these forms are new and we do not yet know how DWP are going to treat them. All I can suggest is that you fill it out in as much detail as you feel is necessary to give a clear picture of your situation.

Maybe members can comment from their own experience . . .

I think it likely that it will be at least a couple of weeks until it is uploaded to the Members area.

Hi.

I have asked for help, but it appears from the responses it will be too late for many of us. I joined this site a few months ago specifically because I knew mine was due and it now looks I won't get the help I needed.
