The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) recently announced that “in most cases” people coming to the end of their 10-year award for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) this year will not be required to attend a face-to-face assessment.

This follows on from the introduction of a new, shorter PIP review form that is now being sent out to those with a ‘light-touch’ award, which is typically for between five and 10 years.

The DWP has published a sample copy of the ‘PIP AR2’ form - for reference use only - as part of the PIP Toolkit on GOV.UK. However, it’s a great way for people with a light-touch award to understand what questions they will need to answer on the six-page document, before the letter arrives from the DWP, allowing them to gather any specific information needed ahead of time.

Ongoing awards are primarily for those with the highest level of support or whose needs will not change or will only deteriorate - since 2019, this also includes most people who have reached State Pension age.The six-page review form covers:Here are all 16 questions on the PIP AR2 form.The form explains that this may be your GP, hospital consultant or a specialist nurse and asks you to provide their details.Questions 13, 14 and 15 are given the most amount of space on the form to write additional information.
