TOPIC: DLA just got a dreaded brown envelop

DLA just got a dreaded brown envelop 6 months 1 day ago #174420

I've just got a letter from DWP above moving from DLA to PIP, had a stroke in 2001!!
So I don't think I've got paperwork from hospital & rehab. So do I take copies with the pip form? Is too much or take all information?

Many thanks

Hi and Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explain 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?

There is no 'right' amount of supporting evidence to send with the PIP2 form. Have a look at our PIP guide and it will describe the descriptors you will be measured against. Then you will be able to decide what will be useful to submit. Don't forget to send copies and keep the originals yourself!

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 relating to your PIP without having to start a new topic each time. We ask members to keep everything relating to the same claim in one topic as it makes our 'job' very much easier - and I hope you will find it useful too :)
