Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit for people who may need help with daily activities or getting around because of a long-term illness or disability. PIP has two parts – a daily living component and a mobility component. PIP has replaced Disability Living Allowance for anyone making a new claim.
To be eligible for PIP you must be aged 16 to 64 years, have a long-term disability or health condition, and need help or support with daily living, or with mobility, or both. You must have needed this help or support for at least three months, and expect to need this for at least another nine months in the future.
Our team can support you to make a PIP claim as the process can take a long time due to the amount of information required.
How much PIP you receive depends on your individual circumstances but as a guide the rates are:
- Daily living – standard rate. Weekly rate £57.30
- Daily living – enhanced rate. Weekly rate £85.60
- Mobility – standard rate. Weekly rate £22.65
- Mobility – enhanced rate. Weekly rate £59.75
