They have started contacting the people who are between 65 - 67 and have indefinite awards and they have to apply for PIP just because of when their 65th birthday was.

Swift and Monic - I'm 'only' 50 with an indefinite award and they sent me the letter a couple of weeks ago as well!

I put it down to being in the 'wrong' postcode area, ie one that's being targeted  >erm<

I'm 37 yo, indefinite and had the letter for PIP, so maybe they are contacting some people on infinite awards too?

Yes once they start assessing the indefinites it could well be done by area. UC started up north and worked it's way now. Apparently my LA now have 150 UC claimants. It would make more sense to me to do the assessments by age because that would more evenly split all the face2face interviews across all the assessment centres rather then flooding and backlogging one or two.

I got the letter for moving to PIP last week. I had to phone up to say I wanted PIP and answer a load of repetitive questions to get sent a form. I can't see why they don't just send the form  >steam< I expect filling in the form will probably a lot more annoying.

James if you have high rate mobility then you'll need to be careful as the distance is less than 20 meters for pip and lots of the high rates are being refused in the transfer.
