TOPIC: DLA to PIP

DLA to PIP 2 weeks 2 days ago #174664

Hi thanks to this site I got DLA because of my mental heath and im due for a PIP assessment soon. Because of the DLA I can see a counsellor and go to a support group. Before I got the DLA I was unable to go out and have been close to taking my own life and if I lost the money I would soon go back to being like that. Do I fill out the questions like I am now because I am only coping because of the DLA?

Yes you must complete the form as you currently are. Please make sure that you use our PIP Claim guide and in particular the sections on the use of "reliably" and "on the majority of days".
