DLA to PIP

Postby lisa m 1973 » Thu May 22, 2014 3:00 pm

Hi. Just wanted to query. Having had an aneurysmal haemmoragic stroke at the age of twelve, my left balance organ was removed 5 years ago and Ménière's in my right ear, I was awarded lifetime dla at my last application.

I understand that if you're condition worsens, which it has for me with the addition of fibro, you are meant to inform them. With the change to PiP my understanding is that my dla will be stopped until a decision is made which could be months.

My problem is that I cannot afford to lose my dla until they get their act together and make a decision. However due to my change of condition I now believe I qualify for enhanced rate mobility whereas I currently get the lower rate on dla.

So my question is do I inform them in the hope they award me, but in the process of doing so putting myself financially in dire straights or do I wait until they contact me which I now hear could be as late as 2017 and lose out on money that I believe I will be owed and that I so badly need.

Any advice or comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you put in for a change of circumstances now you will receive the PIP forms but because you are on indefinate DLA you will still receive this until they make a decision.

If you get the higher rate they will backdate you to when you put in the COC but if however they decide your rates to lower you will have to pay back the amount owing from the COC

Putting in a COC opens up your claim totaly so you cannot just ask them to look into your mobility they will assess it as a whole

Hope this helps

To make sure you get the correct information i would call them up and ask.

the dla will pay you until the pip reach a decision I received a letter from capita last week to notified me that my payment will remain the same until the decision is made and I also will have to have after 3 years of hell another assement

i have been on dla for the last 7 years and my renewal has just come and it still says dla nothing about this new pip system.

So i would just put your change in and see what they do.

BE aware:)))) A friend of mine was getting indefinite awards of Mobility and care with DLA...
She told the DLA that there had been a change and that she is worse now from when they
awarded her DLA back in the 90s.... She sent all the new additional evidence to say that
she is now suffering from this that and the other and that her original condition and the
help she still needs is the same, but her condition is much worse.

Weeks later they stopped *everything* she appealed twice and they wouldn't give it to her again
even though she had DLA for life....If you have DLA just keep it and don't mention anything to
them until you *have* to convert to PIP otherwise you will probably loose what you have at the moment.

Lisa, if it possible, try and see a Benefits Adviser about this. With them being familiar with the system and how things have and are changing, they should be able to give you a more detailed idea about possible outcomes. And if you do decide to go ahead with a CoC, they should be able to help you with it.

you will still get your dla payment while they assess your PIP, I think time limits vary as to whether it's atos or capita who do your assessment, mine was really quick compared to others I've read about, and I had capita do mine, a very nice woman came and did it at home, and told me I should here decision in 4/5 weeks and 5 weeks later I had my decision and have been awarded both care & mobility. She actually knew about FM but I also gave her a print out of over 200 symptoms of FM, the more you can get organised for assessment the better and have someone with you too.
