TOPIC: PIP renewal.form

PIP renewal.form 1 month 2 weeks ago #170913

1) The pip renewal form asks if your condition has improved, remained or worsened. All of mine are as they were. I'm just worried that if I just tick they are the same, the DWP will just think I've ticked those for ease. Anyone had any problems doing that?
2) It asks for operations I have had or in the future? I had some before I completed first app two years ago and two since. Do I have to include the ones I already documented, or just the one after?

Many Thanks

We've only had two members report going through a reassessment with the new AR1 form.

One ticked no change and received an extended award, the other ticked no change for most of the activities and deterioration for the rest for which they supplied new evidence, they again had the award extended. The current PIP Claim guide discusses the issues of sending or not sending additional evidence with the new form.

You should only need to include the operation that has occurred since you last award was made.
