You dont have to apply for PIP if you are already on DLA! you will be called for a reassessment. :-D

Hi, I've heard people talk about PIP and DLA on this forum, I may sound stupid but what are they? I haven't applied for any of them, and don't get anything. I work full time (but it's killing me slowly) and don't think I can go on like this for another 9yrs.

Hi all just a question about the question about pip !!!!


Does everybody have to have a face to face assessment ! i just thought it was all new claimant not the ones that had D.L.A ... may be wrong.

I don't see the point in trying. I can still put one foot in front of the other.x I've looked at the questions and I can't really see how I have a chance.

Hi as your DLA is coming towards a end you will get a pip form through and most of us will have to go for a face to face interview. They will ask you questions like
1)?can you walk the length if a bus without chronic pain?
2) can you prepare a meal for yourself even using a microwave
3) can you use a phone?
And so on.

There is now a points system and depending on how many points you get you will either be refused or go in to low payments or if very lucky higher payments there is no middle rate.
So if you are working I would say you will be scored low or can do a lot for yourself. I think you go in and tell them what your worse days are like. I have just applied for pip as my DLA is coming to an end.
I wish you all good luck x

Hi you just need to relax and try to manage your illness better!You will get any benefits you are entitled to in due course.There is far too much worrying going on this site and the health assessor that you see is a fully trained professional so it,s like anything you have to wait for these specialists who do a great job considering the enormous pressure that they must be under.....Lee

thanks for replying i am relaxed i was just asking a simple question about something i have no idea about and i appreciate any input anyone can give me to how long things take benefit or anything otherwise as when you ring these professionals up they actually don't have a clue on how to answer you apart from a pre written list of answers in front of them to which leaves you making a phone call for nothing which is not the assessors fault of course just the way things are and if i can get a few answers to a few questions i want to know then thats what this site is for.
