Why should we have to lose our Pip just because we are over 65. I think we the disabled would need it just as much or more

    HI,

    Who said you lose your PIP when you're over 65? that's not correct.  If you already have a PIP award when you reach state pension age then you'll continue to receive it after this age. If you haven't got a PIP award at this age then you won't be able to claim it and you'll need to claim Attendance Allowance which doesn't have a mobility part.
    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.
