TOPIC: DLA to PIP success

DLA to PIP success 1 year 8 months ago #185449

The dreaded brown envelope finally arrived after 5 traumatic months. It was based on a paper assessment after DWP decided the home consulation f2f was not required at the 11th hour. Sheer utter relief - awarded enhanced for both for ongoing period until after March 2027 (previously had DLA for both indefinitely). Maybe now I will stop feeling sick every time I hear the post drop through the letterbox each morning.

For anyone about to begin a claim, or in the process, don't give up or let it overwhelm you. Become a member and read the guides. Gather as much relevant information and support as you can. Start as soon as you are able to in order to give yourself as much time as possible to complete your application. Then use the guides again and take it one step at a time, question by question. I know I would not have managed without the wonderful guides. I really hope you too have a successful outcome.

I have been a BAW member for many years and would be lost without their guides. Once again a huge thank you to everyone who works so hard on the guides, newsletters, forum and web site. It is all truly invaluable to me - thank you so much. Sandhead.
