    If you've been refused PIP then your DLA will continue for 4 weeks after the decision was made on your PIP. If someone was claiming Carers Allowance for looking after you then this will also stop. If you were claiming the SDP premium for a means tested benefit then yes this will also stop. No one here knows the dates of any decision you had, for a definite answer you'll need to ring DWP and ask.
    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.
