Personal Independence Payment

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit paid to help people with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability.

An award of Personal Independence Payment can dramatically increase your income – so if you or your partner or a child aged 16 or over have an illness or disability – whether physical, mental health or learning difficulty, contact an experienced adviser to see if you or they ought to claim.

Most people who are currently getting Disability Living Allowance – except under 16s and those who were aged 65 on 8th April 2013 - are gradually being reassessed for Personal Independence Payment instead.

If you currently receive Disability Living Allowance and are not sure if you are going to be affected by this change, you can learn more here:
