The roll out of PIP is running far behind schedule, the DWP have confirmed.

All existing DLA claimants should have been ‘invited’ to claim PIP by April of this year.

But a poster on the Rightsnet forum has confirmed that this target is now history.

Instead the aim is now that all working age DLA claimants will have received their invitation letters by late 2018, with the final assessments and transfers not being completed until mid-2019.

However, we reported last month that there had been a huge fall in the number of DLA to PIP cases being sent to Atos and Capita since January of this year.

So, whether the DWP will stick to this new target remains to be seen.
