What is Personal Independence Payment?

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit for people aged between 16 and 64 who because of a long-term illness or disability may need help with daily activities or getting around.

PIP has replaced Disability Living Allowance for anyone making a new claim.

How much is Personal Independence Payment?

PIP has two parts - a daily living component and a mobility component. They are paid at different rates depending on the level of difficulty you have performing particular activities, such as preparing food and drink, dressing and undressing or moving around.

You may be able to claim one or both components.
