Guide to Personal independence payment

What is PIP?

From Turn2Us:

“Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is money for people who have extra care needs or mobility needs (difficulty getting around) as a result of a disability.

There are two parts called components, the daily living component and the mobility component. You may qualify for one or both of them.

PIP is replacing Disability Living Allowance for people aged 16-64.”


“If you’re aged 16 to 64 you could get between £22.65 and £145.35 a week by claiming Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

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