HAVE "PLAGIARISED" THIS FROM ANOTHER LINK ,SEEMS IT IS A RECENTLY WRITTEN ANSWER FROM MARIA MILLER THE DISABILTY MINISTER..
From April 2013 to March 2016 everyone aged 16 to 64 receiving DLA will be reassessed to see whether they are entitled to the new Personal Independence Payment.
People entitled to Personal Independence Payment will have their claims smoothly transferred over and their DLA will stop.
Those not found to be entitled to Personal Independence Payment will be informed and their DLA will stop. They may be able to claim other benefits.
There are no current plans to replace DLA with Personal Independence Payment for children aged under 16 and people over the age of 65 who are already receiving DLA .
