Personal Independence Payment: Benefits Rules

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 179256, tabled on 12 April 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether the extension to personal independence payment awards to allow time for renewal claims to be submitted is still in place; and whether that policy incorporates awards that are won at appeal.

Answered on

15 April 2021

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claimants given an award without a review, whether following an appeal or not, were extended due to the pandemic to ensure renewal claims did not have to be made at that time and awards would not go out of payment.

We have now returned to a business-as-usual process.
