DWP - Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

​​​​​

Type of service:
National Organisation
Address:
Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Caxton House, Tothill Street, Westminster, London SW1H 9NA
Service description:
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability if you’re aged 16 to 64.

The amount you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.

You’ll be assessed by a health professional to work out the level of help you can get. Your rate will be regularly reviewed to make sure you’re getting the right support.

Your carer could get Carer’s Allowance if you have substantial caring needs.

If you get Disability Living Allowance

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is ending for people aged 16 to 64.

You can keep getting DLA if you’re under 16 or you were born on or before 8 April 1948 and have an existing claim.

You’ll continue getting DLA until the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) invites you to apply for PIP. You don’t need to do anything until DWP writes to you about your DLA unless your circumstances change.
