Where a claimant finds it difficult to complete the “How your disability affects you” form within the 4-week period, they are advised to contact the Department who will automatically provide an additional two weeks when needed. Where a claimant still has difficulty, they will be granted further time where it is considered reasonable to do so.

Recent research carried out by Ipsos MORI indicated that 85% of claimants were able to complete all sections of the PIP2 questionnaire and only 4% were unable to do so. This has been the subject of a government publication
