Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit that helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability. You can only claim PIP if you’re 16 to 64 years old.
If you're assessed as being eligible for PIP you could get between £22.65 and £145.35 a week. The rate of PIP you receive depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself. Also, if you have substantial caring needs, your carer could get Carer’s Allowance.
People who are currently in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) are in the process of being invited to apply for PIP. There are many organisations who can help when it comes to claiming PIP, like Turn2Us and Benefits and Work - guides you can trust.
