    Hi and welcome Marc

    Can you tell us a little more so we can help ?
    DLA and PIP have very different criteria, PIP is mainly about functionallity not condition 

    When did you receive your decision letter ?
    Did you ask for a mandatory reconsideration ?
    Have you appealed to the tribunal ?

    Unless your situation has changed in a way that affects your ability to carry our the PIP activities a supersession will probably be dismissed
