A government minister has admitted that over half of those PIP claimants who have had their award extended because of the pandemic have still not been told.

Justin Tomlinson, minister for disabled people, revealed yesterday that, in total, over 1.6 million PIP claimants have had their award extended. But of these only 756,00 have so far been notified.

The other 850,000 claimants will be notified of their new award end date ‘early 2021’.

In the meantime, they will be left in a state of continuing anxiety and uncertainty.
