I have recently just received a pip award letter on behalf of my son who has ADHA and severe ASD. He turned 16 in September 2016 and was on higher rate care and higher rate mobility.
He has been put on enhanced rate of pip which we are so pleased about.
My questions are, he has "for an on going period" on the award claim, is this the equivalent to a DLA indefinite award?
Also, the award date starts 22nd of February and first pip payment won't be paid until 17th march covering 22nd February to the 16th of March. His last DLA payment was on 30th December and is due another about now but no pending transactions showing up in my bank account.
Do they just stop paying the DLA once the award for pip has been made? And is it. Penal to have such a gap in his benefits until the first payment of his pip is made?
Seems a little strange that there would be a gap. Going to phone them tomorrow to see what's going on but just wondered if anyone else on here may be able to he'd some light on this for us.
Thanks in advance.
