    I read something about that today on fightback! You are entitled to pip at 65. Look up "fightback" on facebook and you can find all the information on there.

    Hi, No, that's not true for PIP. There's no lifetime awards for PIP like there was for DLA. The longest award length is 10 years ongoing. You will continue to be reviewed, what ever your age. 65 is no exemption unfortunately.

    PIP was only introduced in April 2013 so it's impossible for you to have been claiming it for 6 years.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.

    Based on the statistics the average length of a PIP award falls in the category 2 to 4 years whatever age you are
