    PIP Claim telephone number following end of DLA 19th Apr 17 at 2:48 PM
    Hi,

    We have received a letter from DWP saying that my son's DLA is ending now that he is 16 (which we expected) and to call a number if we want to claim PIP.

    My question is what will the telephone call entail. Will it be a straightforward call to request they send out a form or will it involve answering a load of questions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi. It does involve some questions regarding nature of disability, name and adddress of gp and any other consultant, can they use evidence from dla claim (they seldom do) etc. Call takes about 15-20 minutes and then you get the claim form PIP 2 several days later. Call is very general, nothing to worry about.

    "You’ll need to have this information when you call the DWP:
    your full name, address and phone number
    your National Insurance number
    your bank or building society account details
    contact details of your GP or other health professionals you deal with
    the dates and details of any stays in hospital or residential care
    your nationality or immigration status
    if you’ve been abroad for more than 4 weeks at a time in the last 3 years (you’ll need the dates and details)
    You’ll be asked if you have any conditions relating to your mental health, a learning difficulty or behavioural condition. These questions are asked to check if you need any additional help or support with your claim."
