Help with Personal Independent Payment claim
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) can help you with some of the extra costs if you have a long term ill-health or disability.
You could get between £23.20 and £148.85 a week if you’re aged 16 or over and have not reached State Pension age.
The amount you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.
You must be aged 16 or over and have not reached State Pension age to claim.
You must also have a health condition or disability where you:
- have had difficulties with daily living or getting around (or both) for 3 months
- expect these difficulties to continue for at least 9 months (unless you’re terminally ill with less than 6 months to live)
You must have lived in England, Scotland or Wales for at least 2 of the last 3 years, and be in one of these countries when you apply. If you’ve recently returned from living in another EEA country , you might be able to get PIP sooner.
You can get PIP whether you’re working or not.
