    PIP, the new benefit introduced by the Government, will replace DLA for disabled people aged between 16-64, even if you currently have an ‘indefinite’ or ‘lifetime’ award. You can use the PIP checker at to see if PIP affects you.

    Disabled children will continue to receive DLA until they reach the age of 16. DLA will also continue to be available for those who turned 65 on or before 8 April 2013. If you receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement or Armed Forces Independence Payment, you will not be affected by this new allowance.
