TOPIC: Thank you for help but I have a question

Thank you for help but I have a question 2 years 3 weeks ago #129027

I just wanted to say thank you for the information this site gave me in fill in my DLA renewal form. Not only was it successful on first application they have awarded me the highest rate for both care and mobility. (Before I only had the highest rate for mobility). But it has also been awarded indefinitely, where as before it was only awarded for 2 years. So I am very relieved.

But....I note that PIP is being introduced in the PL area at the end of February 2015, so I have a feeling the idea of an indefinite award is not all that it seems.

Can you tell me am I going to have to start all over again in just 1 month? It took me over a month to fill in the last set of forms?

Thank you.

Hi T,

Congratulations on The HR DLA Indefinite Awards for both components !!! :cheer:

Thanks for the positive comments regarding our guides !! :)

As you have an Indefinite Award, it has been stated that current DLA recipients with Indefinite Awards will not be invited to claim PIP until "Sometime after October 2015 running to October 2017.

I would expect that you would get at least a year, maybe longer, before you are invited to claim PIP.
