Just  wondering if I am in that position now, of  having only this opportunity to get  my mobility?  As I am coming over from DLA to pip?
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

    If you havnt make sure you get help feeling in pip form , ask your Dr to put you in touch with your well being support workers. Get consultants to  write letters get as much information as you can Drs letter . Any aids you need . Good luck charlene

    If you are over 65 when changing fron DLA to PIP then youmust get your mobility right as it will never be increase

    If you are approaching the magic age then whether you are having a review or a change from DLA be aware that this could be your last chance to set your mobility

    This is a common mistake.
    If you are in receipt of PIP when you hit retirement age. as long as you continue to meet the criteria you will continue to receive PIP.
    Only if you have no PIP award will you have no option other than to apply for AA

    At retirement age the upper limit of any mobility award is set
