Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

This is a benefit to help with extra living costs for people with a disability or a long term physical or mental health condition. This benefit is not means tested.

PIP aims to support you if you face difficulty doing everyday tasks or getting around because of your condition. That’s why there are two parts to PIP, a daily living part and a mobility part.

The process to receive PIP is much quicker if a medical professional thinks you might meet the special rules for terminally ill people, so please bear that in mind if it applies to you.
