TOPIC: PIP review form AR1

PIP review form AR1 7 months 3 weeks ago #169771

Does anyone know whether these forms are dealt with any quicker or longer than an initial claim for PIP please?

I'm afraid we only have one member who has reported completing the process using the new form.

It will depend on whether you tell them of a change, if you do then I would expect similar timescales to when a PIP2 is issued, if not then I would expect it to be quicker, but we can't confirm that yet.

Thank you for your response Gordon. I shall write a full report of my AR1 journey when complete, whether positive or negative as I hope it might be helpful to other members.
At the time we filled in the form ticking no change,although in some cases we did write some additional information. That is to say although my husbands ability to do certain things had not changed a further diagnosis had been made and so we mentioned this as it was an underlying factor in the cause of his difficulties. We made reference to this by attaching the clinic notes received from various appointments with his consultant, and the completed form was sent recorded / signed for delivery. This was 3 weeks ago so I expect it is a little too soon to expect a response. I shall keep the forum updated as we go along.

We have just received the brown envelope which has informed my husband that he will continue to be awarded his enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility until 2022 with no requirement to have a f2f assessment. This is a great relief to us both.
Just to reiterate, he received the AR1 6th Sept 2016 . We gathered all of the clinic notes etc since his initial assessment and although ticked all of the boxes "no change" , we still mentioned where necessary any new developments or diagnosis which helped confirm his difficulties. We also wrote a summing up of his current situation, in the section where it asks if there is anything else you felt they needed to know.
We sent the form back with copies of the original clinic notes named and numbered and showing his N.I. Number as suggested by this sight. This was sent recorded delivery on 16th Sept., and signed for by someone at dwp the following day. 2 weeks later , I rang dwp using the number at the top of the letter we had received with the form. I asked if I could confirm whether they had received the form and accompanying information. The gentleman I spoke to was very helpful. He went into my husbands file and confirmed his form had been received and scanned into the system together with all of the 11 supporting documents we had sent. It was now a waiting game !
Today we received the result dated 24 th Oct and so this process has taken approx 6 weeks. I hope this will help other members going through the reassessment process and as always our thanks to the moderators who keep us so well informed and as much up to date as possible. We couldn't have gone through all of this successfully without their help.
