    As an existing DLA claimant, you will not need to make a claim for PIP until you are contacted by the DWP at some point between now and 2019. If you are due to renew your allowance, you should follow the normal process by keeping to the timescales set by the DWP.

    Please note that your annual allowance letter that you will receive from the DWP in Spring is not the invitation to make a claim, you will receive separate notice of this.

    You can use the PIP checker at to see if PIP affects you.
