I currently receive DLA, will I be reassessed for PIP?

Everyone with a current award of DLA (Disability Living Allowance) will be contacted about making a new claim for PIP between July 2015 and October 2017, and will have to be reassessed. Claimants in Northern Ireland will be contacted between December 2016 and December 2018.

Please note: If you're aged between 16-64 on or after 8 April 2013 you will be invited to claim PIP if previously on DLA. However, If you're already 65 or over on 8 April 2013, then you will not be reassessed for PIP and will remain on DLA. In Northern Ireland this is from 20 June 2016.
