Circumstance change

Postby Colegg » Sat Mar 01, 2014 10:42 pm

In the last 6 months my circumstances have changed my health has got worse and need more care than before when I was awarded low care on dla when it tells you to tell them about your change in circumstance if your health gets worse or better do you have to reapply for dla/pip or do I just get asked to send supporting evidence in and they review it as I got plenty of time left on my original award unless they call for me to fill in pip forms
Anyone able to help thanks

I have read that if you report a change, then you are automatically asked to apply for PIP. See if you can find out from one of the Government sites, they are changing the rules daily. Hope it all goes ok for you xxx

Thanks I got fibro and few other conditions and life has become more and more difficult in last few months with my sister being constantly with me while my husband is at work as I am not ment to be on my own or if I am not for long might be worth ringing them then but frightened I am going to loose my lrc as you never know which way things can go

hi, like you i have got worse, to the point of my daughters care for me. I put off for nearly a year going for higher rate until last november I rang up and spoke to a nice lady who said she would send me a new form and it would not be the PIP form, it took me a while to fill it in as i would look at it and think they asked that question in the last bit etc so i did bit by bit each day or every few days, and before i sent it in i photo copied it because im worried i will get brain fog on the day if they come to see me.
I had a letter saying it will take about 11 weeks to do and now had a letter from my doc to go for medical with him the fact ive seen him twice in the last 2 weeks doesnt count and receptionist is saying we only do reports on saturdays, so the fact i will see him in a few days wont matter!!! what im trying to say really is go for it as soon as you can. although ive seen PIP forms (specimens) and they dont look as bad.

i hope this helps :-)

I reported a change just a few weeks ago and it remains DLA not PIP. I rang and they sent me out a form to add additional needs to.

Sorry to hi-jack the thread but who do you report a change in circumstance to?
