Pip or pension?

hi, my pip award ends next year but my pension begins, is it true that I can’t get pip after that in addition to pension? Just wondering, thanks.

    Hmm. You might want to re-check those dates. You can't make a new claim to PIP after you're pensionable age but you can certainly renew before then.

    @mikehughescq thank you, the dates are both March 2021, I originally thought they’d done it on purpose so that I am helped by one or the other?

    If all else fails you can claim AA when you have retired, although that has no mobility part just care.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Thank you @woodbine, attendance allowance could help things, I’ll check somewhere about rates etc,

    Hello, if you are claiming pip at pension claim date you will continue to receive pip unless you do not meet the requirements for claiming. You can renew your current claim if you loose the mobility part you will have to take it to tribunal. If it’s your first pip application then you will not be awarded the mobility part once you have past the pension claiming age if it’s your first pip claim.

    Thank you @wilko that’s helpful to know. I’ll phone them tomorrow and find out about renewing. Thanks.

    Hi @Chloe_Scope no, I decided to look around and I found out that you can’t renew a claim before six months and in theory they should contact me three months before the award end date. So I decided to let it go for a few months, until October actually. Then I’ll phone them. I got the info from turntoUs so I’m relying on it being correct.

    on a separate matter Chloe I’m not getting notifications when someone uses my name etc any thoughts on that please?
