From DLA to PIP

sally64 Member Posts: 4 Connected
Hi, my son was on standard care DLA. He was advised by the hospital to apply for the mobility part of DLA as his condition had worsened. He asked DWP to look at his claim again and was told that it would be a PIP claim, he was not awarded either and his payment stopped in July 2017. He appealed and eventually went to a Tribunal on 24th January and was awarded enhanced mobility and standard care PIP. As DWP have not appealed the tribunal decision, will this mean that my son will get a backdated payment from July (he is unsure because he was originally on DLA and it will now be PIP). Thanks for any help.
