    @noramc If you are already getting PIP when you reach your 65th Birthday it just carries on in the same way that DLA used to. This is subject to reviews only according to the timescale you were awarded it for when you just have to show that there are no changes in your condition. It's only people who become disabled after their 65th Birthday that can't claim PIP instead they have to claim AA Attendance Allowance.

    I'd advise you to re-post in "Ask a benefits advisor".  I could be wrong but, I assume, like DLA if you were on PIP before reaching age 65, then your PIP continues after 65.

    @Matilda you're not wrong. What else would a disabled person live on? I know for sure that AA is for NEWLY disabled people over 65. Sorry but steve51 is incorrect.
