Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

PIP and DLA

  • If you are currently getting DLA there is no need to claim PIP. If you are between 16-65 you will get a letter when your DLA award is ending asking you to claim PIP. You must then fill in the PIP form and send it by the date given on the letter.
  • You will have 4 weeks to make your claim. If you need more time use the contact details on the letter to ask for more time.
  • You will be asked to attend an appointment for a face to face assessment with a Healthcare professional arranged for the DWP to check whether you qualify for PIP. If you cannot attend contact them as soon as possible to rearrange the appointment so your PIP is not refused.
  • If you do all of the above Your DLA award will then continue until a decision is made on your PIP claim.

If you need further support, contact us at the Adviceline on adviceline@deafplus.org or book an appointment with one of our Advisers HERE.
