The Department does not have verified data on the number of DLA higher-rate mobility claimants who were reassessed for PIP and were not awarded enhanced-rate PIP mobility. We intend to provide more detailed breakdowns of DLA to PIP reassessment outcomes in due course. The Department is working to guidelines set by the UK Statistics Authority to ensure we are able to publish statistics that meet high quality standards at the earliest opportunity.

However, breakdowns of PIP reassessment claims by type of clearance (i.e. whether the claim was awarded, disallowed or withdrawn) are published online at https://stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/ Breakdowns of PIP reassessment claims in payment by mobility award type (i.e. enhanced mobility, standard mobility or daily living award only) are available in the same place.
