    If you mean the descriptor that was changed for following and planning a journey then, you'll need wait because if it applies to you they'll contact you eventually.

    I'm assuming this is what you're talking about. With very limited information from you it's hard to advise.

    Not sure where you heard that from. If you were 65 or under on 8th April 2013 then yes, you will be transferred to PIP eventually. If you are this age then start to gather some evidence for when you do have to apply because it will be needed.

    Then you will be transferred to PIP because you were born after 8th April 1948.
