I would have thought that it would have been easier for them to read the typed info instead of my handwriting. I also cannot understand why PIP2 is not yet available on a PDFicon format Again, DWP promised 2 years ago that electronic forms would be available soonwhich would make carer's lives so much easier if they choose to type these very lengthy applications. I did type the section where it states that as I am the DWP Appointee, every effort should be made to come to a paper based decision, and I stuck it down at the back of the application where it mentions about Face to Face interviews.

    Anyway, once again, many thanks for all the input, I will update the forum as and when I hear anything.
    Best of luck

    Default Re: Child's DLA & DLA Migration to PIP

    Hi, another quick question please. I am my mum's DWP Appointee, I sent the PIP form off last week, but have since received an extremely detailed supporting medical letter documenting some of her illnesses. I have sent it to the address which was on the back of the PIP form with a letter asking them to put it with the PIP application which they received last week. In reality, do the DWP do this?
    Thanks for any advice.

    They do put it with the application, yes. But in my experience, they ignore supporting medical evidence.

    Default Child's DLA Renewa Pack arrived 5/6 months early

    Hi

    My child has been awarded DLA until February 2018. The renewal pack has arrived today with no date for return. I am in the throws of moving and then my child is having an operation and have not got the time to complete it for at least the next 6-8 weeks. I will be able to submit it by end November giving DWP 2 months to make a decision.

    My question is, do I call them and inform them that I will send it back by end November, or shall I just send it back end November.

    Any advice please.

    Default Child DLA Descriptors

    Hi, my child's DLA renewal pack arrived a few weeks ago, I am now about to complete it.

    Does anyone have a link of the Child DLA Descriptors please?

    The DLA ends in February, I will send the renewal back this week, is this enough time for DWP to process the renewal?

    Thanks for any advice/help

    Default Re: Child DLA Descriptors

    As I understand it, there are no descriptors as such, like there is with PIP. You have to prove that your child has more care and /or mobility needs than a child the same age or the same needs as a younger child.

    The mobility criteria for children is the same as the DLA mobility for adults.
