Yes all correct but just a point, if you are not already on PIP at pension age, then you cannot claim PIP, Therefore if you are already on it and they make you do a re-assessment like me, then decide that you no longer qualify for PIP even though nothing has changed with regards to your medical conditions, you will no longer be able to apply for it because you are over retirement age. In other words the criminals are trying to get all the pensioners off it.
There would be no reason to not challenge such a decision and additionally it woould still be open to you to claim AA.
Similar process to DLA but generally much easier to claim if presented well. Gets even more clear cut if you’re over 80.
Attendance Allowance, payable to over 65s who qualify, who do not receive PIP daily living. Same rates as PIP daily living. There is no mobility component to AA.
