What Pip Is For

Personal Independence Payment (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.


You can get Personal Independence Payment (PIP) if all of the following apply to you:

You must also be under State Pension age if you’ve not received PIP before.

You can still get PIP if you’re working or have savings.

PIP New Claims (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. Find out about call charges)

PIP Appeals

If you disagree with a decision you can ask the DWP to look at it again. This is known as a Mandatory Reconsideration. If you are unhappy with the result of the Mandatory Reconsideration, you can appeal directly to Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service.
