Transitional issues

Transitional issues can arise in the process of transferring from disability living allowance to PIP. Problems faced by claimants may relate to: notifications inviting a transfer claim, the operation of time limits to complete a transfer claim, or what can trigger a voluntary PIP transfer claim.

NB - in Scotland, adult disability payment is replacing personal independence payment and PIP claimants in Scotland will gradually be transferred to the new benefit - see Social Security Scotland's guidance Case transfer for Adult Disability Payment and Case transfer working age DLA to ADP.
