TOPIC: DLA to PIP award dates

DLA to PIP award dates 4 months 3 weeks ago #176001

Received my PIP decision today, standard rate for both care and mobility. Just a quick question I had an indefinite DLA claim, PIP didn't contact me to apply I phoned them to report a change in my condition. Should I get paid from the date I phoned them or do they treat it as if they contacted me and start payments from 4 weeks after the award date Thanks to this site for all the support and invaluable information which without I wouldn't of known where to start. Keep up the excellent work

It's great news that you have a decision you are happy with! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)

I would expect DWP to treat this as a transfer, even though you notified a change of circumstances.

I also phoned to report a change in my condition and had to wait 4 weeks to be transferred from DLA to PIP and could not order motability car until change over as technically had only one month of DLA award left even though the amount of payment for PIP was exactly the same!
