Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

This new benefit has replaced Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for claimants over 16.

Claim number 0800 917 2222

Many existing DLA claimants turning 16 or with fixed length DLA awards that are ending will find they are being sent PIP claim packs, get help to fill this in if available as it is expected that over 40% of existing DLA claimants will not qualify for this replacement benefit.

From a later date all existing long term DLA claimants will be forced and expected to apply for PIP.

For existing DLA claimants over 65 on 8th April 2013 they will remain on DLA and do not have to transfer to PIP at a later date.

A good guide to how the PIP points system works and a good help to filling the form in yourself is available here at Benefits and Work
