Roll out the reassessments

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Care and support, News

A brief Personal Independence Payment (PIP) update from our good colleagues at the Department of Work and Pensions.

new-dwp-370x229From 26 January 2015, PIP natural reassessment is being extended to some existing DLA claimants living in postcode areas beginning G (Glasgow), NE (Newcastle), WA (Warrington), WN (Wigan), DH (Durham), SR (Sunderland) and IV (Inverness) where:

  • an existing DLA claimant’s fixed term award is coming to an end;
  • they are approaching age16;
  • we receive information about a change in their care or mobility needs;
  • or an individual chooses to claim PIP instead of their DLA.

Most DLA claimants with a long-term award will not be affected until October 2015 or later.

More information about reassessment can be found in the PIP Toolkit.
