star this property answer text <p>The information requested is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>From 31<sup>st</sup> May 2019, new claimants to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) whose award would otherwise have had a review after they had reached State Pension age, have been receiving an ongoing award and will be subject to a light touch review at 10 years. From 9<sup>th</sup> July this year, we also began moving existing PIP claimants with a scheduled review after they have reached state pension age onto ongoing awards with a light touch review after 10 years. For these existing claimants, changes to their award duration are taking place prior to their scheduled award review. This means that claimants who we identify as benefiting from the change will not be sent a review form or undergo a review or further assessment until the 10-year light touch point is reached.</p> more like this
