TOPIC: DLA to PIP award

DLA to PIP award 1 month 2 weeks ago #246916

Hi I have completed my assessment in Jan 2020. I received a letter to advise they have all the info they need, that was 8 weeks ago. I phoned 3 weeks ago and telephone advisor advised no decision on case. I'm concerned that it's not been decided, does it mean I wont get PIP. I am a high level right leg amputee with severe back issues due to bulging discs and diabetic type 2. I need my car and worried that this is going against me or is current pandemic causing delays. Any views appreciated

I've moved your post to its own topic, you replied to a post from over four weeks ago.

Even before the Coronavirus outbreak we were seeing Decisions take upwards of ten weeks this has extended to at least twelve weeks and may lengthen further.

The delay is in no way a reflection of what the Decision will be, it is just how long your file will take to the top of the pile.

If you have an existing award of either DLA or PIP then it will be extended, if necessary, to allow a Decision to be made.
