There is a huge backlog in PIP reviews at the moment, some going back 10 months or more.  Most people are being given a 12-month extension while the DWP try and catch up.

If you have a vehicle with Motability, please check when it is due to be changed as you will only be able to exchange vehicles if you have a full 12 months left on your award.

You can still choose a new vehicle if you are in receipt of the yearlong extension but again, you must have the full 12 months on that extension to qualify.

Many people have not received a letter form DWP telling them they have a 12-month extension. If you think this might be you, please contact DWP on 0800 121 4433 as soon as possible. Or call us on 01223 734000 for any further advice.
