TOPIC: PIP Justin Tomlinson Ages of the 375 550 by range?

PIP Justin Tomlinson Ages of the 375 550 by range? 4 months 3 hours ago #229548

Q continuing please :
And Conversely?
Current DLA claimants not age 65 at 8.4.2013 though arriving at age 65 on the 9.4.2013 now age 71 years (others between 65 to 70years + now. would still go over to PIP?
A recent up rating letter for this year 2019=2020 I saw said :
cEven if on DLA and with an indefinite or Lifetime award will be " invited " to PIP from 2015 though the date on this letter was of 2019.

One of the reasons I am asking re the fine details as someone "in the industry" of benefits asked me and I decided Benefits and Work would have or be able to source the specifics
Lastly I did not know there were any some DLA claimants (65 on 8.4.2013 or earlier that had a fixed term award? Does it then become Lifetime and or Indefinite?
My view the above first mentioned is a very unequal policy/ others are unfortunately available also.

thank you again.

If the person was under 65 on 8 April 2013 then they will be invited to claim PIP even if they are 65 or over when this happens.

DLA wards with a Fixed Term will be reviewed and an appropriate award made, this may be another Fixed Term award or an Indefinite one.

Hi not sure if this was sent (or 1 similar)
Does Indefinite( in previous reply by Gordon) mean that the award that is indefinite of DLA is just vague and is usurped by the DLA to PIP for those not 65 on by 1 day only 8 4 2013.Though might have been 65 on 9.4.2013 and now over 71 years of age, still for being pushed over to PIP.

Thank you expecting this to be the last one on "lengthy" topic many thanks

As I have e already explained, if you were under 65 on 8 April 2013 then you will be invited to claim PIP even if you now over 65. Once an invitation to claim PIP has been issued you cannot retain your DLA after a Decision on your PIP claim has been made, whatever that Decision might be.
