Figures released by the DWP show that almost one in five claimants who are forced to move from disability living allowance (DLA) to personal independence payment (PIP) get no award whatsoever.
The figures were given by minister for disabled people, Penny Mordaunt, in answer to a parliamentary question.
Mordaunt revealed that up to July 2017, 649,480 DLA claimants were reassessed for PIP. Of these, 125,680 (19%) received no award at all.
The figures do not include claimants who went on to successfully challenge this decision by way of mandatory reconsideration and appeal.
The figures also do not give any information about what proportion of DLA claimants were better-off, and what proportion worse-off, under PIP.
