From April 2013 a new benefit, Personal Independence Payment (PIP), started to replace Disability Living Allowance for disabled people aged 16 to 64.
Personal Independence Payment has many similarities with Disability Living Allowance including:
- It has a daily living component, which has similarities to the current care component
- It has a mobility component.
- It is a non-means tested tax-free payment
What it could mean for you:
- If you’re of working age and claiming this benefit you’ll be reassessed
- The assessment is stricter which may mean a change to your benefits - view the eligibility criteria
The Department for Work and Pensions administer this benefit and have comprehensive information available on the GOV.UK website.
