The DWP have announced that 10 new postcode areas will be subject to personal independence payment (PIP) for renewals as well as new claims from 30 March 2015.
The PIP reassessment areas extend to postcodes beginning: BL, CW, FK, FY, HU, OL, SK, TN, TQ and TR
If you are in one of these areas and your fixed term DLA award is due to end on or after 17 August 2015 you will receive a PIP claim form rather than a DLA renewal claim form.
Any DLA claimant reporting a change in circumstances which might affect their award will be assessed for PIP rather than DLA from 30 March 2015 in these postcode districts, any existing DLA claimant who turns 16 years old may also be assessed for PIP.
