Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with the extra costs of disability or long-term health conditions for people aged 16 to 64.
It is a non-means tested benefit. So getting it doesn’t matter how much you earn, or whether you have savings or capital.
To get PIP, you must:
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.
If you’re 65 or over, you can apply for Attendance Allowance.
Personal Independence Payment is made up of two components:
Each component can be paid at either a standard or an enhanced rate.
|Standard weekly rate (2017-18)||Enhanced weekly rate (2017-18)|
|Daily living component||£55.65||£83.10|
