Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 139052, tabled on 18 January 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether it is her Department’s policy that all personal independence payments claims due to end between March 2020 and January 2021 should have been extended.

21 January 2021

The Department has been automatically applying extension of awards of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for all claims due to end between March 2020 and January 2021, except those where a new decision has been made since review and reassessment activity resumed in July. Additionally, a small number of awards have not been extended where action on their case is pending. These are not included in Covid-19 easements and will not be extended as part of this exercise.
