    Hi @twang5.

    Good afternoon & welcome to our website/online community.

    Can I point you towards our home page where you can read more about PIP.

    We also have a very active online community where you will find other people who have/going through the process.

    They will help you out that's for sure.

     Please please let me know if I can help you further.

    Hi @twang5,

    Welcome to Scope's online community!

    Have you contacted the DWP about the status of your application?

    I've moved this post to our Ask a Benefits Advisor category, where @BenefitsTrainingCo may be able to advise with regards to the timescale.

    Hi @twang5

    There are no fixed timescales for the DWP to deal with PIP claims on migration from DLA, and they do seem to vary quite significantly, with some being awarded PIP without a medical after only a few weeks, and some taking months and months.

    What I would say though, is that 8 weeks is a fairly substantial amount of time not to have heard anything from them, and for peace of mind I would recommend just giving them a call and making sure they have your form and are processing it.

    I would expect within the next 4 weeks you should have an assessment date if required, or a decision if not, and if you have heard nothing by then I would think about making a complaint.

    Good luck, and do let us know if you have any further concerns or need further information.

    Kind regards,

    Mary

    Hi twang5,

    Have you rung them? I don't think you need to worry about the 7th August. If this is a fixed term award, and you posted back the forms within the deadline given, then your DLA can be extended. The DWP has a general power to extend fixed terms of DLA in these circumstances (where no PIP assessment decision has been made).
