DLA to PIP
I was 64 in September 2013 just five months after the cut off date of April. I was on indefinate High rate of DLA for Care and Mobility from 1995. I was called last October for PIP I am now 67. I am two points off the Mobility part of the application which will mean I lose my transport. I am appealing as the Assessors report in incorrect in several places. This ordeal has sent me to a near mental breakdown with the stress before my application, during the assessment and following the receipt of the report. I understood that PIP was not available for people older than 65.
