Personal Independence Payments (PIP)

Personal Independence Payments (PIP) have now replaced Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

From June 2013

PIP replaced DLA for all new claims for people aged 16 - 64

This change means that to qualify for PIP you will have to fill in a form and it is likely that you will have to attend a medical assessment.

From October 2013

Anyone reporting a change of circumstances or reaching the end of their award is reassessed for PIP.

2015 Onwards

Everyone else getting adult DLA will be invited to claim PIP. This change will not affect anyone on DLA who turned 65 prior to 8 April 2013.

Contact the Advice Shop or the Citizens Advice Bureau before seeking reassessment of your Disability Living Allowance.  Please also contact these services if you need representation at appeals.
