DLA to PIP transfer

SethLaaSethLaa Member Posts: 115 Courageous
Hello all, am currently living in the SL1 (Slough) postcode area, does anyone know when I will be requested by the DWP to transfer from DLA to PIP as I thought that it should have happened by now, thanks for any assistance from SethLaa

    To be honest I would suggest that you are more likely to get an answer by seeing your local medium. The DWP haven't got a clue.

    Enjoy your DLA benefits as when you are transferred to PIP you may not get the same award as the Benifits are totally different in how they award points for your abilities as in PIP and your disability in DLA.  Wait to be asked don't enquire .

    Most welfare organisations advise that all DLA reciepients will be invited to claim PIP by October 2018 with all reassessments to be completed by mid 2019, in my area the letters are coming out thick and fast now. But whether it’ll be completed on the timescale though, remains to be seen. 

    I have my invite a few weeks ago, now nervously waiting for either assessment or PBD! Xx

    Your area was due to start in... July 2015. There has been no official update on the timetable since August 2017 but DWP have stated that they do not expecti finish invites until April 2019. Best guess is they will sail comfortably past that.

    The loss of lower rate DLA care does lead people to believe that PIP is harder to claim but that isn’t necessarily true. Many people are way better off on PIP than they were on DLA so it’s worth getting advice on likely entitlement as it may be to your advantage to convert early.
