I hope someone can help us out with this problem. I am asking for help on here as a last resort. My husband has been in hospital for the past three weeks and I am trying to do things he has always done for us. For years (since1993) he has been getting his DLA for top mobility and middle care. He was told back in January 2014 that he had to apply for PIP. He filled in the form and sent it off. In September he had a medical for it and a letter came through at the start of November saying that he isn't allowed PIP. With him being so ill and in and out of hospital since last November he never got round to dealing with it. A few weeks ago he asked for a reconsideration, but they have turned him down because he was too late to put it in and the excuse he gave wasn't good enough. This letter that came this week also says that he can't appeal against that decision. Is that right and what happens now? I rang up the DWP for him and they said that as he has just had is 65th birthday (last week) he can't claim PIP again.
