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

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.

In England, Scotland and Wales: If you were 65 or over on 8 April 2013 then you will not be reassessed for PIP and will remain on DLA. If you were 16 - 64 on 8 April 2013 then you will be reassessed for PIP.

In Northern Ireland: If you were 65 or over on 20 June 2016 then you will not be reassessed for PIP and will remain on DLA. If you were 16 - 64 on 20 June 2016 then you will be reassessed for PIP.
