Attendance allowance

JohnDLewis Member Posts: 4 Listener
I'm getting a little ahead of myself, I still have two years to Pension age.
I'm currently on PIP. As I understand it, people who are pensioners cannot claim PIP and have to claim Attendance allowance.
Is this so. Will my PIP be stopped automatically and will I have to - at that stage apply for Attendance allowance.
I find it all very worrying. I'm likely to be reassessed for PiP for the last 3 months of my "under pension age" time, and may (if this is so) have to be reassessed for AA after I reach pension age. An utter nightmare.
