    Is there a physical reason you can’t do it yourself or is it just not knowing what to answer?

    Hi stepheng81,

    If you need the whole form filling in you'll need to see what services are about in your area - contact your local CAB or Welfare Rights team for assistance.
    If you are stuck on one or two questions we could possibly advise on here.

    @stepheng81,
    It will be a difficult transition from DLA to PIP as the accessment criteria for the two benefits are totally different from each other. Whereas DLA focused on your disability, PIP focuses on your abilities to manage in your daily living and your mobility issues. Having high rates in DLA is no guarantee that you will be awarded the same in PIP. To find out how you may fair in the PIP accessment take a self test on the site work and benefits, answers honestly as the answers you write in the PIP application form have to be justified in your face to face accessment. Good luck.

    Bored with saying this now @wilko DLA never focused on the disability. It always focused on the consequences of the disability. Just like PIP.
