    Hello @Fiona198445 - & welcome to the community. Your son will be asked to move onto PIP after his 16th birthday but likely before his DLA claim ends, but there's no knowing as to when that might be, sorry. His DLA will continue to be paid until a decision is made about his PIP claim, & that will usually be made after an assessment.
