Does changing your bank account trigger the move from DLA to PIP?

 Thank you,

    From my own experience no it should not. Changing your bank account is not a change of your circumstances in regard to health. I changed my own on a number of occasions. I did change from DLA to PIP basically due to my area being part of the first roll out. I won a fair award so do not worry. I found keeping a diary of my problems and keeping all doctors, physiotherapy letters a get help. If you are over the age of fifty Age UK have good advisors who can help.
