Hi help I sent my renewal DLA form back for the 27/2/2014.
Then on the 6th March I got a letter saying that although they have received a claim for DLA, they could not do anything as it had been replace by PIP ( you can not claim DLA but you can claim for PIP so we have sent your DLA claim from to the PIP unit to treat as a claim for PIP. The PIP unit will write to you about your claim as soon as they can.
Then on the 18th March DLA sent the same letter out to me.
Then PIP sent me out a PIP form to fill in ??
When I phone them and said that my DLA had stop PIP said that it should not have stop, so I phoned DLA and they said my DLA form got to them late and that is why they stop payment.
I said I sent this form back in enough time for it to reach them before the 27/2/2014 and that I have no control of the post, or there departments, and that it was sent of in enough time to reach them, plus they never in any of the letter say it was late etc. can anyone give me some info on this and how long PIP will take etc. would much appreciate thank you
