PIP review/ending

Can anybody explain what determines whether a PIP claimant is sent a PIP review form (or new PIP2) or simply sent a letter advising them that their PIP award will come to an end on xxx date and inviting them to reapply.

I have a client with a life long health condition who was given a three year PIP award when transferred from DLA and they have got the invitation to reapply letter and I can’t see the logic to that.

The guidance is here https://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/sites/default/files/pdf/Award%20period%20guidance%20-%208%20August%202018%20%282%29.pdf As far as I know this is still uptodate.

In your case it has not been followed

Thank you both for posting that (simultaneously!) - I failed to find it myself but it’s just what I was looking for.

As a read it the only time the claimant should get a letter telling them the award is ending and inviting them to reapply is if it is a Short Term Fixed award without review.
