Applying for PIP

My son currently receives DLA and I am (already) his appointee for this benefit. Last week I received the letter 'inviting' me to apply for PIP. After 20 minutes on the phone the form arrived this week. Can anyone advise how I fill this in (as in) do I fill it in as though my son is filling it in and say "I need help with ..." Or do I fill it is as his carer and say "J needs help with ...." Also when it comes to signing the form is it me or him that signs it?

Hope this makes sense

    Hello bunty71,

    As you are the appointee for your son you can fill the form in on his behalf and sign it yourself.
    If you need help completing the form I can help you to find a local service or give you some information to help you complete the form.
    Contact me at the helpline if you would like any further help.

    Best wishes
