I am 65 years old and on disability living allowance DLA, how will personal independence payment (PIP) affect me?

If you are already 65 or over on the day personal independence payment (PIP) is introduced in April 2013 and you are already getting disability living allowance (DLA), then you will not be affected. 

You will continue to receive DLA in the normal way after PIP is introduced.  However, the DWP have said that they want to see how PIP works for people aged between 16 and 64 before deciding whether to extend it to people over 65.  So there is a possibility that you may be affected at some time in the future.
