    Nothing will happen when you reach 65 because that's not state pension age. State pension age is currently 66. When you do reach this age your PIP continues for as long as you remain entitled to it. 

    You will need to make sure you claim your state pension, which is usually about 4 months before your 66th birthday. 

    If you're single and claiming working age benefits such as ESA/UC/JSA or Income Support then those will stop the day before you reach 66. 


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
