Changing from DLA to PIP

Hiya , my son turned 16 on the 7th of November , he has cerebral palsy and autism . He gets DLA and his last payment was the 27th of oct ,  I received a letter inviting me to change him from DLA to pip and the letter says I need to ring before the 7th of December  .  I am his appointee so his money goes into  my bank , I got a payment from DLA on the 10th of November and it was half of hat he gets for DLA , I didn’t question it as i thought it might have something to do with the fact he’ll be changing to pip soon and I thought they’d pay the other half today ( 24th November as his DLA is due today , his last payment was 27th of October and he gets it every 4 weeks ) the payment normally goes in my bank the night before at about 10pm but nothing has gone in . Has this happened to anyone else ?   I am ringing them tomorrow anyway to ask for the pip form and to give them all my sons professionals phone numbers and addresses so I’ll mention it tomorrow but I just wondered has this happened to anyone else ?  Thanks xxx
