Some PIP claimants are being left with no payments because their fixed-term award has come to an end before the DWP has made a decision about a new award, a government minister has admitted.

Justin Tomlinson, minister for disabled people, told MPs in a written answer that: “some claimants on fixed term awards without a review date are now falling out of payment before we have been able to make a decision on renewal claims they have made. We are prioritising these cases to ensure we can make a decision as quickly as possible.”

The minister did not give any indication of how many claimants are affected or how soon ‘as quickly as possible’ is likely to be.
