    there is going to be medicals for PIP and like ESA you will get than more often from reading the DWP bulrb on medicals most people will be 2 to 5 years between medicals

    go to DWP web site plenty to downlaod and read just remember its not law yet and everything can change before PIP comes in

    Surely if I/you have a DLA life award then they are legally bound to honour that until the day I/you die . If not they shouldn't have put it in writing

    No such luck a life or INDEF award can be reviewed at any time ... DLA under the "right benefit program" pick 10,000 DLA awards each year and any award can be picked as long as its been in payment 12 months and reviewed they are picked at random and reviewed

    In the dla white paper which will be replaced in the end with a PIP white paper are a couple of lines that say they can get rid of DLA and replace it with something else or nothing most laws have a cop out built in

    Maybe we should all fight PIP under the Human Rights Act-murders, rapists, other criminals & terrorists can use it-why not us?

    If disabled people end up not being able to live a independent life due to these changes,then it will be against human rights. Several disabled forums and charities are monitoring these changes, they will fight to keep our independence.

    Yes CT, but the definition of disabled it being redefined by the government. What we shall have is two laws that are in conflict, one for PIP & other benefits, & our right to live independently. It will be argued we can, or that we are not disabled enough. I cannot see a serious challenge succeeding. Many disabled people will have to die or be put away for there to be any backlash to this.
