PIP - Personal Independence Payment

08/04/2013

From 8 April 2013 the Government is introducing a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for eligible working age people aged 16 to 64.


The Government claim to be committed to supporting disabled people to lead independent and active lives. They state that they recognise that disabled people can face additional challenges to leading independent lives and are committed to maintaining an extra-cost, non-means-tested disability benefit to support disabled people.

The Department of Work and Pensions has full information on their website and it cover many aspects including what the changes mean, when PIP will be introduced etc.

The short address for this page is: www.dwp.gov.uk/pip

Each claimant must fulfil the criteria, sadly the savings have been announced prior to the assessments having taken place which is dissapointing. Each claimant will need to make their own case.

Good luck to everyone who will be part of this change!
