    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.

    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.
