Thank You - DLA to PIP 1 year 6 months ago #247965

I would just like to say thank you after receiving news today that my DLA - PIP transfer has awarded me enhanced for both living and mobility. My friend who helped me fill in the forms used the guides from my subscription that I had downloaded to my laptop.

My transfer started in December and I got my award letter today 15th May. I did not have to attend a medical. I am under the care of a psychiatrist, surgeon and CPN and have been for over 10 years so I'm guessing they must have asked for reports. The award doesn't say a time limit just 'ongoing period' not sure what that means.

A big weight off my shoulders.

Hi TrevorR

Congratulations on your award. That's great to hear.

Ongoing means that you shouldn't hear from them for ten years!

It's unlikely they asked for reports and if they did it would probably have been a single call to your CPN. However, it's far more likely that with your friend you did a great job filling in the information which is why you weren't asked to do a telephone assessment.
