Reviews of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) awards, which can be paid at one of eight rates, are a key part of the benefit and ensure that claimants continue to receive the correct level of support. Planned interventions take place up to one year before an award is due to expire. PIP was introduced in April 2013, therefore no claimants in receipt of 10 year awards have yet received a planned intervention.
