I would be cautious of doing this, each page of the PIP2 has a bar mark that is unique to you and needs to be readable when the document is scanned by the DWP.

It is perfectly OK for you to type your answers and attach them as extra pages to the PIP2, just make sure that each page has your full name and NIN at the top and that they are numbered, we recommend "page X of Y" so that it is easy to see if pages are missing. Make sure you clearly mark on the form where your answers are and on the relevant page that you are answering question X.

Attach the pages to the back of the PIP2 using a staple or make a hole in the top left corner and use a treasury tag, string or ribbon to the form. The pages need to be easily detached so that they can be scanned by the DWP.

Thank you Gordon, I typed directly onto the original form & included additional pages. Having sent the form back with proof of delivery, the tracking says it's still not delivered some 6 days later. I'll give it one more day (last before expiry) to see if it's confirmed delivery.

I wouldn't wait and would phone the DWP to confirm whether they have it or not.

It was according to the RoyalMail track site delivered at 13.00 today, but says 'no proof of deliver, check later. So presumably that's enough?

It's up to you but I would recommend you check with the DWP!
