DLA and PIP
That is indeded the question ... I know someone who was told in April,they could not apply for DLA as pip was coming in then on June 10 th there was the big announcement that PIP had started and I still haven't come across anyone who has filled in a PIP form, yet .......its all been DLA if you have been sent DLA renewal,pack then you will be assesed as DLA and if you get an indefinite award that means you won't be reassessed until October 2015 ... Unfortunately by then it will be general election time so who knows what will happen then .. So just fill it in as normal and don't worry about it.
Hey VG thank you for your reply,started it last night,hopefully get it finished in next couple of days! Hugs Jackiex
As far as I am aware here in England all new claims are now PIP and most other DLA situations are only appealing a previous decision. As VG says they has seemed to be some misunderstandings and miscommunications through the changes in the welfare reform !
