SMI Payments stopping

Does anyone know if the date for cessation of payment for SMI benefits set out in Martin Lewis's article - see links beow -are correct? If so, then anyone who is about to be offered a loan instead has longer than until merely 5 April to consider their position than the DEP keeps telling us. 
I can't find anything online anywhere. CAB had no idea and the DWP are horribly vague!

This is the link to the article:

(See the section under "If I do nothing when will the payment stop?"

Many thanks
