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 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.
