TOPIC: DLA Renewal - result finally!

DLA Renewal - result finally! 1 year 11 months ago #127197

Hi

I have been waiting for nearly 3 months for a decision on my DLA renewal claim. Thankfully today it came through and I have been awarded high rate Mobility and Care until early 2019.

I would like to say thank you again to this site that points out things that I would never have been aware of otherwise. :)

Id like to say I can relax for a bit, but my ESA claim is due for renewal (Im actually surprised I haven't yet had another brown envelope dropping through the door) Also, PIP is being rolled out in my postcode area (L postcode) and I have had that many different replies from DWP as to when it will effect me.... Im just hoping having gone through the whole DLA renewal process again they may leave me be for a bit?

Has anyone any idea?

Thanks again x

Hi J3234,

Congratulations on your successful DLA renewal !! :cheer:

The government have stated that all DLA recipients aged 16 to 64 on 8 April 2013 will have been invited to claim PIP by "late 2017".

See : Timetable for PIP replacing DLA.

Accessible from : This page.

However, as you may know, there are huge backlogs with PIP, and we have a General Election in May 2015, so, "Who knows" ?

With regards to your ESA reassessment, again, as with PIP, there are massive backlogs, and it is not beyond the realms that your ESA reassessment has been deferred.

Have a read through : This topic thread.

Thanks for your kind words regarding B&W.
