Telephone calls and dates claim start
A bit confused. Had the brown envelope to say DLA ending and need to apply for PIP. Letter states claim must be started by telephoning them. So ... is the start date of the claim, the date of this telephone call? I will need to ask for a paper form to be sent out to me as I cannot deal with this via the telephone. If given one month to complete and return this form, does the start date of my claim change at all? I am concerned that if the forms take say, two weeks to be sent out and arrive (not unheard of!), this will only leave me two weeks to fill them in and return them by the due date (whatever that may be). Right now my thoughts are "It won't be long before this government invite all useless, scrounging, disabled, waste of space folk to take a "free train trip" and enjoy the benefits of a communal "shower" (no water being used), followed by a mass "sunbed" session (with temperatures to suit the purpose) and the promise of then "floating freely in the atmosphere for eternity. Absolutely no offence intended to anyone.
