    Hi Mandy,

    Has you DLA stopped now? Sorry trying to understand your post. Your DLA should only have stopped if you failed to return the PIP form within the time stated. If you asked for an extention of time before the deadline you should be fine. Providing you return those forms before the time. If you DLA has already stopped then it would be because you didn't return those forms.

    Evidence can be anything from a letter from your GP to consutltant reports, Occupational Therapist reports, MRI scans, a diary written by yourself explaining the difficulties you have daily, a letter from someone that knows you well, carers plan anything really. PIP isn't award based on a diagnosis it's awarded based on the difficulties in daily life. Sadly an indefinite DLA award means nothing now.

    Your ESA won't stop the only thing that will stop if your DLA has stopped is any premiums like Severe Disability Premium.

    Length of time after you send the form back depends on where in the country you are. Very few people manange to have a paper based decision so you'll most likely be asked to attend an assessment. This could be weeks or even months. Then the decision after this could be anything from 1-8 weeks sometimes more.

    CAB are very good at helping to fill those forms in maybe you can ring them for an appointment? Please send in as much evidence as possible to support your claim because they mostly don't contact any medical proffessional for any evidence. Good luck.

      If you think you can't get the PIP form returned within the time then please ring and ask for a extra time. They'll gladly give you this and your DLA will still continue.

      When i sent my evidence off for PIP i already had it at home. When i attend any hospital appointment i always get sent a copy of the letter that's sent to my GP. If you don't have anything and it really should be less than 2 years old, you can ask your GP if he has any although there maybe a charge for this.

      Also when filling out the forms for PIP you should put down as much detail about how your disability affects your daily life. Don't just answer the questions with a yes or no. Do you have help to fill out those forms? they're quite complex.

    Your DLA will not be stopped. You will fill the form, send it off and perhaps call for a face-to-face. If you are successful then your DLA will change to pip. They should allow you extra time especially if you are waiting for someone to help you. Hope it goes well for you
