It's up to you, but be aware that the PIP assessment criteria are significantly different from the DLA ones.

If you have had a recent DLA assessment or your conditions have not changed significantly since you were last assessed then you might want to consider using your DLA information.

If you have not been assessed for some time or your conditions have changed since you last were then you might want to concentrate on using new evidence.

Using your previous DLA evidence does not preclude you from supplying new evidence.

There is no guarantee that your DLA information will still be available.

Although you can ask as part of you making a claim, I would not expect the DWP to provide copies of the DLA evidence to you.

Our recommendation is to supply all of the evidence you want those assessing you to review with the PIP2. You can get copies of your previous DLA information, if you do not have copies yourself by making a Subject Access Request.
