Hello, I got my PIp award and the letter said “for ongoing period”. Does anyone know just what or how long that means please? Or is it just a phrase they use to confuse? Thanks for any ideas.
pip award: Hello, I got my PIp award... - Fibromyalgia Acti...
Hi good to hear some good news for a change Its usually 10 years and then a light touch reiview after that it is good news and takes the stress away as well
Oh thanks Ajay, that is good news. I’m stressed to bits anyway, so that’s hopefully one box I can tick off. Let’s hope the “government” in their wisdom don’t make any changes! 🤗
hi Ajay, is this 10 years a new thing? Because I only recently got it awarded, literally a couple of months ago and it says for four years?
Hi its been a good while now .Some get 18 months 2 years 4 years etc
Good luck next time
Some things they look for to recommend a long award is
id put down if applys all over the forms a good few times
1 .long term
2.unlikely to change in the long term
3 just words long term alot
5.all meds and treatment that worked and did not work from when started say 10 years ago
Put the 10 years in a few times on their mind when recommending
The lenth of your award
Great news. I am pleased for you xx
Thank you Mo, hope you are well and rested X
Yay brilliant news 👏 xxxx
Thanks! Can’t believe it … maybe should buy a lottery ticket .. which I never have but maybe on a lucky streak 😊
So pleased for you and for sharing the good news x
Great news, I'm just in the process of an appeal l initially got awarded zero points. Do you have any tips? Did you have to appeal go to tribunal? I have fibro, CFS & mental health issues.
Hi, I initially had enhanced living and standard mobility but when they did my assessment they took away my mobility which I was very upset about and almost appealed. However, having asked around I was advised maybe leave it alone as it’s so stressful and could come away worse off 🤷♀️🤷♀️. Seeing as you were awarded zero points though you have nothing to loose. My only advice is to answer questions thoroughly and talk about how you are affected day to day (make it your worst days throughout) and send in as much evidence i.e. doctor’s/hospital reports etc. Good luck!
Fantastic news so happy for you. I don't think they know the stress it causes. I got the same and phoned and asked they told me its 10+ years. Congratulations stay safe
congratulation that is really good news. Have some party 🎉 lol
so glad and relieved, feel like I dare breathe a bit ☺️
Brilliant news. I got my basic PIP finally at 64 and it ends on my retirement date in 2024 - IE I only seem to get it for 2 years?!
Hi Maud-ie, after retirement you get Attendance Allowance instead of PIP. It was easy to apply for and like PIP it does not affect means tested benefits. I helped my mum through the process recently.
Thank you. Not necessarily, I initially got mine when I was 64, however I’m 67 now. They will probably do an assessment when you reach retirement age but you may not loose it. That’s what happened to me. Good luck!
Good news I am pleased for you. Still waiting to hear from them about mine .
I had the same letter regarding PIP and last had a home assessment 6yrs ago. I can retire in 2024. I hope it helps you. Congratulations on your "Ongoing Award" Take Care. Kentlass
That’s great news x
HiI'm so pleased for you. I've read and been told that if you've been awarded PIP before you retire it carries on into retirement. St least that's one less thing to worry about.
Love & hugs Lynne xxxx ❤️🫂
