    Hi,

    If she's transferring from DLA then this is paid for a further 4 weeks then PIP starts about 3 weeks after that.

    As for the following and planning a journey descriptor then it will totally depend on how her conditions affect her. People do score 12 points for this descriptor but with very little information it's impossible to give any advice.

    Fantastic news! I'm glad to hear my advice helped.

    My daughter has had a paper based review and now i'm waiting for a decision. Fingers crossed, her Enhanced for both parts continues.

    Hi @poppy123456 yes your advice definitely helped as was used to DLA and Pip is very different reading your advice to myself and others helped me understand it better  so thank you all 3 now have pip and after all the horror stories I had read on here we've actually had it rather easy.
    I wish you good luck with your daughters claim. x
