To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many eligible disability living allowance (DLA) claimants have been invited to apply for personal independence payments since April 2016; and of those claimants invited to apply, how many have not applied within the time allowed and have had their DLA terminated as a result.
The information requested is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.
A decision is made on a case-by-case basis on whether or not to cease DLA payments to claimants who do not register for PIP within the allowed time. Additional support is provided for those claimants identified as ‘vulnerable’ (i.e. mental health or learning disabilities) who do not respond to the PIP invite letter.
