TOPIC: Claiming PIP

Claiming PIP 11 months 1 week ago #170556

Just received letter asking me to claim for PIP. Letter states that I must call them by a certain date to claim. Will I then receive forms which must be returned by the date Iwas given in original letter or a later date?

Hi and Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

When you make the initial phone call a shorter form will be completed for you. Then the PIP2 form will be posted out and you will have 4 weeks in which to complete it - this includes postage both ways. A 2 week extension is usually given on request - just phone DWP once your form has arrived if you think you will need it.

Our PIP guides talks you through the process, including the information you will need to hand when you make the initial call.

PIP help for claimants

May I suggest that you bookmark/favourite this on your web browser now so that you can find it easily in future? This will allow you to return with further questions or comments about your PIP along the way without having to start a new topic each time. It helps us enormously when everything relating to the same claim is kept in one topic - and I hope you will find it helpful too :)
