Claimants Left With Nothing When PIP Claims End Before Review

April 28, 2021

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

 

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.
