I am due to renew my vehicle – should I wait until I’ve been invited to claim for PIP before I start a new lease?
As long as you have 12 months of your current DLA award remaining, there’s no need to delay placing your new order. If you lose the allowance during your lease, we will make arrangements for the return of the car. However, you will only pay the cost of the lease until the car is returned, not for the remaining length of the lease. If you paid an Advance Payment, this will be refunded to you on a pro rata basis.
If you have less than 12 months remaining on your award, or you are currently going through a PIP reassessment, you can extend your current lease until you are re-awarded your allowance. Further details will be included in the letter which is sent to you three months before the end of your lease.
