What are the timescales for Personal Independence (PIP) reassessments?
Since October 2013, the following DLA recipients have been invited to claim PIP:
- Children reaching the age of 16
- Those whose fixed term DLA award is due to expire after February 2014
- Those who report a change in their condition.
From October 2015, all other DLA recipients including those with indefinite or lifetime DLA awards will be invited to apply for PIP. The process of reassessing current DLA recipients should be complete by 2019.
Please remember, you do not need to do anything until the DWP contacts you to make a claim for PIP at some time between now and 2019.
