over 70years old
hi. I'm over 70 years old with a number of health problems .I have been on D.L.A. a number of years but recently I applied for P.I.P.over the phone as I have been having treatment for cancer they text me on my mobile thanking me for applying then 6 weeks along the line I rang them up about the forms I should have received and they told over the I was not entitled to apply for P.I.P. as I was never informed by letter or anything the answer I I got was because I was born a year to early that was 1947 I have to stay on D.L.A. the people who claim carer allowance is far better than D.L. A. I think it is totally very unfair.
