hi there, new to this site, so hope i,m posting in the right section! i have just been reassessed for PIP and am awaiting the dreaded brown envelope! i was going through my letters from when i first received PIP when i noticed that the reassessment date was stated as February 2018,so can anyone tell me why i have been reassessed 8 months before that date - can the DWP do this ? thank you in advance, annecrum.

Yes they can.

When your awarded for a certain period of time, on the letter it states that at any time they can re assess you. They also like to assess you 6-12 months before the award date runs out because of the timing it takes to do the assessing etc....
