TOPIC: previous claim forms for renewal

previous claim forms for renewal 9 months 2 weeks ago #196464

Hi, Do you know if the 'decision maker' has access to previous claim forms when reviewing a claim? The reason I ask is that, thanks to your excellent guides, I feel that I should copy out word for word the sections that haven't changed since my previous claim, onto my review form. I know about descriptors that the dwp have changed in their wording so will allow my answers to reflect those changes. I just thought if some answers are copied word for word from my previous forms, the dwp might assume I am 'cheating. ' The truth is that in certain sections, my condition has not changed in any way at all and it would be easier just to copy them out. I am in support group esa and higher rate daily care/lower rate mobility on pip. Many thanks

mad cow

Even if they do, they don't seem to make any use of a claimants previous forms based on the Decisions we see in the forum. I wouldn't worry about duplicating the content providing you are happy that it still applies to your conditions as they are now.
