Dave - I did wonder about that too! Is everything null and void at the switch to PIPS or do all claims where a recent medical/award made are switched straight over without further hassle to the client????

The assessment criteria for PIP are different from those for DLA, so our current understanding is that everyone, who are moved, will be re-assessed (this does not necessarily mean a new medical examination).

I can't worry about that one - if when they switch over and it affects me I will lobby my MP. My needs will not have changed so if they move the goal posts I will kick up a stink. Simple as!

Dawn welcome back

As you have appealed the decision of your DLA mobility component, I would suggest that you provide all the evidence from your consultants with regards this appeal. In my experience where DLA is concerned, unlike ESA (possibly) the onus is on the claimant to provide adequate supportive evidence.

Kind regards

Michael
