    What are the timescales for Personal Independence (PIP) reassessments?

    PIP was introduced in Great Britain in April 2013 and in Northern Ireland in 2016. Since then, the DWP (or Department for Communities in Northern Ireland) have gradually been contacting affected DLA recipients informing them that their DLA is due to end and explaining how they can apply for PIP. 

    The process is expected to be completed by 2021.

    You don’t need to do anything else until the DWP (or Department for Communities in Northern Ireland) writes to you, however, once they have contacted you, make sure you respond within their given timescales.
