The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has shared a new update for people in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) waiting to transfer to Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

A temporary “pause” for most DLA to PIP reassessment activity was introduced by DWP in March 2020 as part of its response to the coronavirus pandemic.An exception was made for DLA claimants who reported a change in their circumstances.

However, DWP has now said it is “currently experiencing unprecedented levels of new claims to PIP” and that reducing journey times for PIP claimants is a priority for the Department.This means that new PIP claims will continue to take priority, along with changes in circumstances for DLA claimants.
