  1. Thank you, RMW, that's very useful to know.
  2. Thank you for your reply. Just to clarify, should my daughter just wait until the PIP forms arrive? Won't my grandsons DLA stop on his 16th birthday though as that's when he was awarded it until? Sorry for all the questions, it's just that we don't want his money to stop on his birthday and his mum suddenly finding things extremely difficult moneywise. If that happens they could be without that money for goodness knows how long as we've read that PIP can take months, even a year before it's awarded, with assessments etc.
  3. Thank you both for your replies. I actually made a mistake in my initial post. My grandson isn't on indefinite DLA, he's been on it since he was very young, he was awarded it until his 16th birthday. Will that make any difference or will I just tell his mum to do as you suggested? Again, thanks for any more info.
  4. Hi, My grandchild will turn 16 next January and we assume he'll be transferred from DLA to PIP. I've read on various forums that the PIP forms are sent out a year in advance, but his mother hasn't received them yet. He's on indefinite DLA. Should his mother request the forms just now or just leave things as they are and wait and see whether the forms will get sent out. We live in Scotland. Thanks in advance for any info.
  5. Lapsed Workaholic, Thank you for your reply, it's much appreciated. I'll get my carer to look into it.
  6. Thank you both, I do get housing benefit and c/t benefit. I'll get my carer to contact them and will also contact age uk. Thanks again for your replies, you've been very helpful.
  7. Hi honeybee, thanks for your welcome and reply I'm not married and have no savings.
  8. Hi, I'm new here. I'm currently on ESA in the support group. I received a letter a few weeks ago saying that as I'm now approaching state pension age ( 6th January 2016) I was going to be paid £111.28p a week as off 25th January. I don't qualify for the full amount of £115 as I don't have enough stamps. My question is...will I be eligible for pension credit on top of my state pension as this amount is a lot less than I was getting on ESA. I live alone. Thanks in advance for any replies.
