    Change of Circumstances DLA & migration to PIP as from October 2013.

    I was just wondering if anyone has had a change of address from October 2013 to today's date of March the 18th 2014 and has been moved from DLA to PIP because of this change in circumstances.

    I basically want to move from one address to another. If I do so I will have to inform the DWP of my new address. I am worried that if I do this I will have my DLA cut and have to apply for PIP rather than wait for the mandatory change in October 2015.

    A good majority know that PIP claims are taking 6 months or more to process and people are being left without part of their income. I want to postpone this as far as possible but it's that and living in a home which isn't safe to live in.

    So anyone had this experience? If so please tell me how it went.

    A change of address isn't considered a 'change of circumstances' in as much to affect your benefit, still be sure to inform them about though.

    As Jard and others have said, a change of address is not a change of circumstances so will not trigger reassessment to PIP.

    However, if the changed features of the new property alter the care needs, that might become a change of circumstances and could trigger 'natural reassessment' to PIP in areas where that system is active.
