Hi Gilly Nicnac

You will have to contact your local council for information on Blue Badges, I have not heard anything myself although most blue badges are issued/renewed on line if you meet the qualifying conditions. You do not need a face to face interview, my wife's blue badge has just been renewed, she had a telephone assessment. The Local Authority emailed the time and date when they would contact, which they did, and the assessment lasted about 15 minutes.

I have just had my reminder it would expire in 2 months. I thought I had to have PIP enhanced mobility to apply. I sent my PIP renewal in January and it is with the assessors. I will try contacting them and see if i could have an extension.

Hi AS

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

You’ll be able to get a Blue Badge automatically if you:

get the higher rate of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
get Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and scored 8 points or more in the ‘moving around’ activity (check your decision letter if you’re not sure)
get Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and scored 10 points for Descriptor E under the ‘planning and following journeys’ activity (check your decision letter)
are registered blind (severely sight impaired)
get a War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement
received a lump sum payment as part of the Armed Forces Compensation scheme and have a permanent and substantial disability that affects your walking.

If you’re not automatically eligible you may be able to get a Blue Badge in certain circumstances. For example, if:

you can’t walk at all, or you can’t walk without help from someone else or using mobility aids
you have a terminal illness, which means you can’t walk or find walking very difficult and have a DS1500 form
you have a severe disability in both arms which means you have considerable difficulty operating parking meters
you are always a significant risk to yourself or other people when you’re near vehicles, in traffic or car parks
you often become extremely anxious or fearful of public or open spaces.
