I'm afraid the cut off date is 06/04/14, so you may still be transferred.

There is only one set of tests being used, which is the new ones.

People who reach state pension age by 6 April 2014 will not be reassessed. They will stay on their incapacity benefit until they reach pension age. For men this means 65. Women born up to and including 5 April 1952 will reach pension age on 6 March 2014 and will not be transferred. Women born on any date after 5 April 1952 will not reach pension age until 6 May 2014 at the earliest and will therefore go through the transfer process.
