    Hi,

    Unfortunately for PIP this is normal unless you have a 10 year award with a light touch review. Not everyone has moved across from DLA to PIP yet but if they were under 65 on 8th April 2013 they will eventually be asked to apply for PIP.
    Community champion and proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice i have given to members here on the community.

    3 to 5 years is the norm for a PIP award. You do have to be seriously disabled with a recognised disabling disease such as Parkinsons Dementia etc to get anywhere near a 10 year award.
