Do I have to claim PIP?

If you receive DLA and are invited to claim PIP you must make your claim within four weeks, otherwise your DLA will stop. A reminder will be sent to you after two weeksPIP has replaced DLA for people aged 16-64, so all new claimants within this age bracket will have to claim PIP.

As long as you comply with the claim process, your existing DLA award will continue until a decision on your PIP entitlement has been made. If your claim for PIP is disallowed, your DLA will stop after four weeks.

Please note: If you're aged between 16-64 on or after 8 April 2013 and live in England, Scotland or Wales you will be invited to claim PIP if previously on DLA. However, If you're already 65 or over on 8 April 2013, then you will not be reassessed for PIP and will remain on DLA. In Northern Ireland this is from 20 June 2016.
