If you are getting DLA, apply for PIP and it gets turned down, do you continue to get DLA until a decision is made at Trubunal?

    Hi,

    No you don't. If you're refused PIP then your DLA will stop 4 weeks after the decision on your PIP is made. If you get as far as Tribunal and a decision goes in your favour then money will be backdated to the original decision.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
