Existing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claimants are only reassessed if:
a fixed-term award is ending soon
an existing applicant is approaching age 16
the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) receives information about a change in a claimant's care or mobility
All working-age people still receiving DLA are likely to be reassessed for PIP. It's important that you make a claim for PIP if the DWP asks you or if your DLA will end.
If you were 65 or over on 8 April 2013 and receiving DLA, you can continue to receive it as long as you satisfy the entitlement conditions.
