PIP – Personal Independence Payment


0800 9172222

Miscellaneous Information

We are committed to supporting disabled people to lead independent and active lives. We introduced a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) from April 2013 to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for eligible working age people aged 16 to 64. PIP helps towards some of the extra costs arising from a long term ill-health condition or disability and is based on how a person’s condition affects them, not the condition they have. It is not means-tested or subject to tax and it is payable to people who are both in and out of work.
