Personal Independence Payments (PIP)
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is extra money to help you with everyday life if you have an illness, disability or mental health condition.
PIP can help with extra living costs if you have both:
- a long-term physical or mental health condition or disability
- difficulty doing certain everyday tasks or getting around because of your condition
You can get PIP even if you’re working, have savings or are getting most other benefits.
New claimants of working age have to apply for PIP rather than Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
You'll continue to get DLA if you're under 16 or were born on or before 1948.
