Can I stay on DLA if I make a claim for PIP?

Given the restriction measures currently in place due to coronavirus, some rules around claiming and assessments for benefits have been changed or relaxed in the short term. Please check our Coronavirus (Covid-19): Welfare and benefits section to ensure you are getting the most up to date information or call the RNIB Helpline on 0303 123 9999, from 8am to 8pm weekdays or 9am to 1pm Saturdays.

No. You cannot receive PIP and DLA at the same time. If you are invited to make a claim for PIP, you cannot choose to stay on DLA. Your DLA will stop regardless of whether you decide to make a claim for PIP or not.

For further information see I currently receive DLA, do I have to claim PIP and will I be reassessed?
