The DWP has announced that 18 new postcode areas will be subject to personal independence payment (PIP) for renewals as well as new claims from February 23, according to Same Difference (with thanks to Benefits and Work).

The PIP reassessment areas extend to postcodes beginning: AB, BB, BD, DD, DN, EX, HX, KA, KY, LS, PH, PL, PO, PR, S, SO, TS and WF.

If your fixed term DLA award is due to end on or after 13 July 2015 you will receive a PIP claim form rather than a DLA renewal claim form.

More details are available from Same Difference.
