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

    HI,

    It sounds like his DLA award has ended but it should continue until a decision's been made on his PIP, providing you ring to start the PIP claim off and return the form on time. He won't automatically transfer across. You need to ring DLA to ask when his payments have ended.

    When you ring to start the PIP claim off they will just ask you some very basic questions and then they will send you the PIP2 form to fill in and return with all his evidence. Here's a sample of what the form looks like. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713118/pip2-how-your-disability-affects-you-form.pdf

    A crossover for what? PIP When transfering to PIP isn't not an automatic transfer and the corssover only happens when you've successfully been awarded PIP, which doesn't sound like it yet.
