These statistics provide a breakdown, by age, of the number of PIP claims cleared for both new claims and Disability Living Allowance (DLA) reassessment claims for each month since PIP was introduced in April 2013.

By adding together some of the age bands you will be able to calculate the number of people who previously received DLA and have been re-assessed for PIP for the age bands you require.
