Personal Independence Payment

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit that helps with the extra costs of a long-term health condition or disability for people aged 16 to 64. It’s gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
    This page explains more about PIP, including how to claim it, how you’ll be affected if you already get DLA and how much you could get.

    Who can get PIP?

To get PIP, you must:

  • Need help with everyday tasks or getting around, or both
  • Have needed this help for at least 3 months and expect to need it for at least another 9 months (unless you are terminally ill with less than six months to live)

Use the Personal Independence PIP-Checker tool to see:

  • if PIP affects you or someone you care for
  • how PIP will affect your child
  • when you can make a new claim for PIP

    You can contact a local support organisation or Citizens Advice to get help understanding PIP.
