New light touch review form for PIP

The DWP have finally created a light touch review form for claimants who have reached pension age or who have an ongoing PIP (Personal Independence Payment) award. 

The form known as the AR2 form is being issued from August 2023.

This form is a much shorter alternative to the AR1 PIP award review form, which most claimants who have an end date to their award receive.

The AR2 form is being issued to claimants who have:

  • very stable needs which are unlikely to change over time
  • high level needs which will either stay the same or get worse
  • a planned award review date due on or at State Pension age

PIP was first introduced in 2013. The new form is being brought out just as the earliest PIP claimants with ongoing (no end date) awards, have been claiming for 10 years and are therefore due to have their first review.
