5.6 From October 2013 any recipient of DLA reporting a change in their care or mobility needs will be invited to claim Personal Independence Payment. We will also begin inviting claims to Personal Independence Payment from people whose existing fixed-term award expires from March 2014 onwards.
5.7 Between October and December 2013 we will run a Pathfinder exercise of around 30,000 DLA claimants subject to the managed reassessment process. Any further lessons we learn during this exercise will be incorporated before we start the full reassessment exercise from January 2014.
5.8 The exercise to contact and invite a claim to Personal Independence Payment for all recipients of DLA will conclude by March 2016, although we would expect that not all reassessments will have been completed until later that year.
