Light touch reviews pip

Currently waiting for a response from Department for Work and Pensions, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I'm aware that an ongoing award of personal independence payment is 10 years. Claimants awarded this are subject to a light touch review. I have looked and searched to see what a light touch review entails and means to no avail. Can you let me know the light touch review will entail if an assessment is required.

Yours faithfully,
Mrs Lynn McDonald

Dear Lynn mcdonald,

I am writing in response to your request for information, received 30th
March.

Yours sincerely,

DWP Central FoI Team

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

To clarify a review form would be sent to the claimant same form that is sent to claimants that are 2 3 4 year awards. If so would the form be returned to yourselves and your decision makers would determine whether the claimant needs an assessment or not. I find it quite concerning that a decision on how to deal with ongoing awards hasn't been decided as yet. These claimants are never going to get better or have vast improvement to their health. This is why an ongoing award is made. For example a person with asd isn't going to miraculously be cured of asd. They will always have the condition and the traits that come with asd.

Yours faithfully,

Lynn mcdonald
