DLA to PIP at nearly age 65

Postby carrieokay » Mon Apr 04, 2016 9:48 pm

I'm on DLA at the moment, medium rate care and high rate mobility. I've had a letter saying I can expect to be asked to apply for PIP.
From what I've read, if DLA is awarded before age 65 it will continue. If not, you have to apply for attendance allowance which has no mobility component.
So I'm wondering if they will leave the PIP till just before my 65th birthday (in June) so I end up on attendance allowance and lose mobility? Or is the switchover seamless so PIP continues after age 65? I can't find anything on the .gov sites to say PIP continues after 65.
Has anyone else figured it out? Or anyone else at this awkward age?

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four.
Unless there are three other people.
