    Hello @Poppy12. I hope you don't mind, I've moved your post to the PIP section of our community.

    Can I ask do you currently claim DLA for yourself and are waiting to be transferred or do you mean for a child that's turning 16?

    Hi, I have just had to transfer, I believe it is a long running switch over. I have no idea how they decide when to make you switch, you just get a letter telling you that your DLA award will end and inviting you to apply for pip.

    They are way behind where they should be for transferring people from DLA to PIP. You will eventually be sent a letter inviting you to apply but when this will be no one really knows, unfortunately. Until then your DLA will continue.
    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.

    My OH was moved over 3 years ago, mine was 12 months ago a friend at the end of last year, as above they are way behind, the good news is you will continue to get DLA until a decision is made on your PIP .

    To claim DLA for a child you need to show they need more care and attention than that of a child the same age that doesn't have a disability.
