PIP helps support you for costs that may be caused by disability or illnesses. PIP is only for people aged 16 to 64. If you are:
65 or older and were born before 8 April 1948, PIP is not the benefit that you will claim to help with extra costs. If you are claiming help for the first time, it will be Attendance Allowance.

DLA helps support you for costs that may be caused by disability or illnesses. PIP (Personal Independence Payment) is gradually replacing DLA for all ages.
If you`re aged 16 to 64 and not currently getting DLA, you may be able to claim Personal Independence Payment (PIP) instead.
If you were born after 8 April 1948 and you`re already claiming, you`ll continue to get DLA until the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) writes to tell you when your DLA will end and invites you to apply for Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
