  • what happens at the assessment, do they just ask questions and how many "healthcare professionals" are there

  • Hi Witchygirl

    There is a set criteria of questions that you are asked relating to how your disability affects your everyday life and your everyday activities. I can only comment on when they come to your home, and then there is just one medical professional.

  • Hi jane59

    When my wife was changed over from DLA to PIP, her DLA ran constantly until her PIP was sorted and there were no breaks in the payments. She was on a lower band with DLA but was awarded enhanced rate PIP. From what I gather, when you are on DLA and then invited to apply for PIP, your DLA will run until your PIP is finalised.

    I want to wish you all the best of luck with your PIP application.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
