Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
Personal independence payment (PIP) is the new benefit intended to cut the benefits bill at the expense of sick and disabled claimants. PIP will replace disability living allowance for working age claimants and, the government hopes, reduce the current cost of DLA by at least 20% as a result.
PIP is set to be introduced in April 2013, initially for new claims only. However, by October 2013, it is intended that all current DLA claimants will have been assessed for PIP instead.
We will be keeping you updated on PIP as more information becomes available.
