When will my DLA end?

Once you have been invited to claim PIP, as long as you comply with the claim process, your existing DLA award will continue until a decision on your PIP entitlement has been made.

If you were 65 or over on 8 April 2013 and live in England, Wales, or Scotland you will not be invited to make a claim for PIP, and will remain on DLA. In Northern Ireland this is from 20 June 2016.

If your claim for PIP is disallowed, your DLA will stop after four weeks.

Further information, including how to make an effective claim can be found in our PIP factsheet:
