PIP Extended? Check Other Awards

June 25, 2020

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

Claimants who have their PIP award extended risk losing other payments because of the last-minute nature of their process.

On 23 April the DWP announced that if your PIP is due to expire in the next 3 months, it will automatically be extended for 6 months.

However, a member has alerted us to a post on Rightsnet, the site for welfare rights workers, which warns that PIP review extension letters are only sent out the day before a PIP award is due to end.

As a result, payments of carers allowance and severe disability premiums may be at risk because other parts of the DWP may not have been told about the extension.

Readers who have their award extended may wish to check with the DWP that those payments have not been cancelled.
