I had an email from the Disabled Railcards people today, explaining how the upcoming transfer from DLA to PIP will affect anyone possessing/wanting one of these cards. If you’re buying one for the first time, you need to send a copy of your DLA entitlement letter and it will be the same once PIP is in force. However, EXISTING users just need to keep renewing their cards and the company will not require further evidence. In other words, it won’t matter if you are not accepted for PIP. So, if anyone is currently on DLA and hasn’t yet got a card, it might be an idea to get in quickly. I paid £18 for three years, which is cheaper than other categories of railcard and (as far as I recall – haven’t got the info to hand), the Disabled Railcard has more flexible terms than the others.
