DLA to PIP was created by RosaM
I was receiving Higher Rate Mobility for over twenty years and returned my DLA to PIP application in November 2019. Following a telephone assessment in September this year, I was awarded Enhanced Mobility AND (thanks to your Guides and Forum Advice), Standard Care -which I was not expecting, from November 2020.
My question is should my Standard Care Allowance be backdated to November 2019 or is it just from the date of the DWP decision?

Hi Rosa

That really is terrific news, congratulations and well done.

Date of award : If you get a decision to award PIP, entitlement to DLA ends four weeks after the next DLA pay day and the PIP award will begin on the following day. So if the decision is just after your pay day, the PIP award may not start for almost 8 weeks. Unfortunately, this will be the case even if the PIP award has resulted in an increase in your entitlement (unless you asked for your claim to be re-assessed under special rules for terminal illness.
