My dear, valued 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 was 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!
