PROGRESS! PROGRESS! SERIOUS PIP PROGRESS!


Readers, I am so so happy at this moment.

In a Commons Statement earlier today, our new Minister, Esther McVey MP, set out Government plans for PIP. A video of the full statement and Labour’s response is here. 

A written transcript is here.

But, I haven’t yet revealed the reason for my excitement. The reason for my excitement is this:

The Minister announced something that will directly very positively affect me, and many others I know. That wass that:

unless they report a change in their condition, those with a lifetime or indefinite DLA award will not be reassessed until October 2015 at the earliest.

We get to keep DLA as it is for a whole two years longer than we previously thought!
