DLA.... going through change to PIP

Henry Member Posts: 66 Courageous
Yesterday  morning  I  received  a letter from Disability living allowance   to  tell me that  I am still entitled to middle rate of care and mobility allowance .   I  phoned  them.  They informed me that it  shall  be  that  way  until  the Decision is made  on PIP.    
All   paper work  is now  with the  decision maker at  DWP .
I   await   with  interest   what  they  decide. 
It  shall  be  aye  or  nay.

    Hello to all members moving from DLA to PIP, please remember that the two benefits use a different criteria when score awarding your benefit. DLA is about disability whereas PIP is about your abilities hence the wording in the application form. Don't be surprised if you lose part of you DLA when moving to PIP mobility seems  and apears to be the main losers.
