    It isn't going to affect my son for ages yet - his pip doesnt run out until november 2026 - so it's actually benefitting us that this roll out is slow- likely he won't be moved over to ADP until November 26.

    What a nightmare for new claimants though. Those wait times quoted seem optimistic. Im sure we were 4 months waiting for PIP.
