Hi, my son was awarded DLA up until his 21st birthday which was in May 95, I applied for PIP but never received a letter telling us of the date for his assessment. I then received a letter saying they had cancelled his application for PIP, I appealed and it went to a tribunal, I won the tribunal and they stated That his DLA had to be reinstated until the pip was sorted, I then received the statement of reason in the post,no notification they were applying for this and thought it was just common practice after a tribunal, I contacted pip who said that they had to appeal by the 21st of Feb and if they didn't I would receive the 10 months of outstanding payments on the 1st March, I have contacted PIP today who have now told me I need to contact DLA I have contacted them and they are saying they have until the 8th march to make a decision as the right dept didn't receive the statement of reason until the 30th Jan and they still have until the 8th march to appeal, coincidentally I received a new assessment appointment for the 8th March, I feel that they are holding out until I attend the assessment to see if pip is awarded, please help my son has been 10 months without any money and I am struggling to subsidice him as I have 3 other children to support
