TOPIC: DLA to PIP success

DLA to PIP success 1 year 3 months ago #213704

My husband - who has been on a lifetime of DLA for many years - successfully transferred from DLA to PIP and at an enhanced rate for mobility and care. So pleased and wanted to thank you for your help. It has taken six months - we had a lot of problems with getting a home visit initially, but Gordon was wonderful, very helpful. It's been a dreadful couple of months, but today we had the letter in its brown envelope. It's a huge weight off our mind.

One thing was a little curious, and that was that the claim was not backdated to when we sent in the form but is actually starting later this month.

That aside, I just wanted to write and say thank you - your guides make all the difference and helped me understand exactly what the questions were about. It's easy to get confused!
