    Applying for PIP - Form Filling 19th May 17 at 5:09 PM
    I have finally got DWP to accept that I am unable to write legibly (or speak on the phone)
    So anyone in the same position as myself should email DCPUALTERNATIVE.FORMATTEAM@DWP.GSI.GOV.UK
    They will email you the initial form (PIP1) - (in editable PDF format - so fill-inable on PC)
    You email it back to them - and they email you a PIP2 - again editable PDF - Which you print out and post to them..
    Success !!

    This is good to know.

    I have always typed mine in word and then printed a page of stickers that state 'please see additional info page X' and attached it all together.

    I don't understand why they stopped offering a downloadable form when the moved from DLA to PIP.

    It is good to know this now available. I put so much information for the various activities that I simply decided on the form to tag 'see page x of additional information attached'.
