TOPIC: DLA to PIP success

DLA to PIP success 3 months 6 hours ago #197230

Hi all,
Many thanks to B&W and forum moderators for playing a huge part in my successful DLA to PIP claim. Enhanced rate awarded for both daily living and mobility until 2023 (So review in 2022).
I have subscribed to B&W since Jan 2013, and would highly recommend B&W’s ‘members only’ guides. I used B&W’s ESA guide for my migration from IB to ESA support group, and for a later ESA reassessment. As soon as I heard that DLA was being phased out I downloaded B&W’s PIP guide and slowly began to gather my evidence together and prepare for the day I would have to apply for PIP. B&W news/up-dates enabled me to keep my PIP preparation up-to-date. However, my condition had deteriorated since my last DLA assessment, and the waiting for the DWP letter to tell me my DLA was ending was getting me down, so I decided to bite the bullet and trigger the PIP process by reporting the change in my circumstances. I felt that whatever the outcome it would be best to get it over with. This course of action is not recommended for everyone as it puts you at risk of losing your DLA prematurely, so please think carefully first. Anyway, it was such a relief to receive the PIP award letter this morning. Wishing all B&W members every success with your claims.
