Hello.....I have indefinable high mobility and low rate care on dla. I have not yet had the dread forms to apply for PIP yet.... And I am terrified literally. If I lose my car  I will be housebound  xxx

    [email protected] welcome to the community. Please don't worry yourself until you look at the categories list and ask the benefit advisor about it. The benefit advisors here at Scope are very very good. So, just take a deep breath and try to relax a little. My name is Bam. There is a Coffee Lounge or you can maybe get to meet some of the friendly people here in the community

    Welcome to the community @grannydeb.

    It can be a worrying time.  You may hear lots of negative stories about changing to PIP but actually some people move onto PIP without any problem. Some even get an increased award compared to their DLA.

    Whatever happens - we're here for you. If you need any advice on filling in the form, attending appointments, dealing with the outcome or if you just want a chat!
