DLA to PIP 1 week 4 hours ago #225903

Well the dreaded letter has arrived to change me from dla to pip.
I’ve printed of the pip guide and I have until the 4th of March to make the phone call.

I will start to gather evidence but having recently moved area my new doctor and hospital consultants know little about me yet, is it ok to use the evidence I have but it’s from my old doctors and consultants where I used to live.

When do you think I should make the call and can I ask for an extension of 2 weeks at that time to complete the pip form.

Any other advice?

With many thanks to the mods.

Delaying the call will allow you extra time to prepare but will also increase your anxiety.

I would call for an extension once you have received the PIP2, there is a phone number on the letter that accompanies the form to make the request on.
