    Hi @chippy1 thank you for getting involved with the discussion. Have you rung DWP regarding this?

    Hi @chippy1, there is loads of us waiting for the transfer so you is not alone, I have just been onto DWP to change my care component which will undoubtedly trigger the change, the sooner the better as far as I am concerned, good luck

    All those waiting to be asked to apply to transfer from DLA to PIP be warned the criteria for scoring points is totally different between the two benefits. Enjoy your DLA benefits as long as you can because when you change many lose part of if not all of their benefits and have to go through the MR and appeals process which drags on for months and over a year in some cases. Do a self test of PIP see how you would score but be honest with yourself as what you put in your applecation form will have to be justified at your acessment.
