    It's highly possible that it will over run this date by a considerable time. All i can advice is your father gets all his evidence ready now, this way it'll avoid any further stress when the time comes. Evidence will be needed to support his claim.

      thank you so much for the reply,i have is OT report already,while his CPN and pyscologist say they will do reports.Is it worth getting them done now even before he gets his 'call'?

      Thank you again for your help

      It may be worth it yes. When he does get the letter to apply for PIP he'll only have 1 month in which to return the forms and they're HUGE! Many pages long!! You can ask for an extention in which to return them. As long as they're return within the deadline his DLA will continue until a decision has been made on his PIP. Hope this helps.
