    This is not correct. If you were 65 or over on 8th April 2013 then you won't be invited to claim PIP. If you weren't this age on that date then you'll be invited to claim it sometime in the near future.
    Link here to confirm.

    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.
