I have been spending quite a few hours looking at the PIP tansitional regulations and relevant case law.
It seems that if you are over 65 (but was under 65 on the 8th April 2013) when you are called to move from DLA to PIP and completely fail (for any reason) to get any award AND miss the time limit in applying for a MR all is not lost.
Provided that you had a DLA award and that no more than 1 year has passed since it was stopped in the transfer process, you can put in a totally new claim for PIP even if you are 68 now.
