DLA to PIP question

Postby lisaward127 » Sun Jun 01, 2014 7:19 am

Hello lovelies, I am on HR for both components of DLA. I am due to renu my application in October of this year. I will apply for PIP at this time, what happens in the period of waiting for the new decision do I still get DLA while I wait? What worries me is the time it seems to take to get PIP and if my DLA runs out in October that there will be no payments in the waiting for a decision. Hope this makes sense.

Can I apply for PIP say now and hope to have it approved by October when DLA runs out and could this effect my DLA in any way if they refuse PIP?

Loads of questions sorry. Any advice welcome.

Thank you

Lisa

Hi Lisa
When you apply for pip and your DLA is due to run out before you get a desicion your DLA will continue to you get a reply. If you are turned down for PIP then your DLA stops even if you appeal. If you appeal and win PIP will be back dated to end of DLA. Hope this helps. It can take up to 6 months for PIP to be sorted.
Hope this helps. X

My DLA renewal date is in November 2014.I been told by my local
CAB that I will be sent a renewal PIP form up to three months before. So there will be enough time to renew. Incase we don't received we have to call The DWP and request for them to send us the renewal form 2 months before expiration. Hope this info's help.

Your DLA money will stop on the day it was due to, and money won't start again till your PIP is in place so beware you may have no money for a while if it takes forever for PIP x
