    Hi Ollychic and welcome
    Thanks for joining us

    At some stage you will be "invited " to claim PIP
    DLA and PIP use different criteria and just because you get DLA does not guarantee you wil get PIP
    It is good that you have found us before you have to make the change, we might be able to help  guide you in the right way

    Have a look at the B&W self test to get an idea of the points system, descriptor and the criteria for an award

    It is not to soon to start preparing. We have lots of good info on here and many knoledgeable members that can try and answer any questions you may have


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
