just thought I would let everyone know what’s happened to me, incase it happens to anyone else!
my DLA was coming to an end at the end of September so in April/May I sent everything of for PIP as DLA was finishing in my area. I received a letter to say they received everything they needed from all parties in June and everything was being looked at and they will be in touch. However my DLA payment will continue until they have met with me and reached a decision about my PIP application.
Well low and behold I have not received any continued payment! I have had to phone twice, and the department I have phoned have chased the payment up, however still nothing, and I’ve been told wait another week and if there is still nothing chance them up again.
So having received nothing since September I am not a happy girl, especially since dealing with people on the phone is very difficult at the best of times, and now with no money I’m pretty stressed when speaking to them … Bring on the confused speaker.
so please watch out if moving over from DLA to PIP
