Contact the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helpline on 0345 850 3322 or write to the address at the top of your awards letter and explain what has changed.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may want to reassess you. This will be similar to an assessment for a new benefit claim. You also may have to go to another medical assessment.

Following your assessment you may get a higher rate or a new component of PIP, or you may be entitled to less. This will depend on how your health has changed.
