     I recently lost my mobility component on dla changing to pip, I used to get my dla in the middle of the month, but was told my pip would be paid at the end, I did get a small dla payment as usual and checked with dwp who said that due to the date pip is paid from i was entitled to a dla payment, I would give the dla a call and ask if this applies to you

    abovenbeyond,

    It all depends on the date of the PIP decision. You need to know what the next DLA pay date after that was (I'm not sure if that was the one you got on 23.3.17, or whether there was another one due after the PIP decision)? Your DLA stops four weeks after the pay date following the PIP decision.

    Summarising:

    date of PIP decision (should be on the letter you got)
    next DLA pay date
    four weeks more DLA after that.

    So I agree with the advice to give DLA a call & check whether you've already had all the payments due to you or there are more to come.

    Of course, the other thing to check is whether you should challenge the PIP decision! You should ask for a mandatory reconsideration within one month if you can. Maybe do the PIP self-test first to see if you think you should qualify.

    Have you asked  for  a  mandatory  reconsideration? You will need  to provide additional  evidence to support it though.  Hope you get it sorted
