For Families and Carers : Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) has replaced Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for people aged 16 to 64. Children under 16 continue to claim DLA. Like DLA, PIP is not means-tested.

If you are making a new claim, that is, you don’t already get DLA, you now have to claim PIP instead.

If you are already on DLA, you will eventually have to claim PIP instead.  Many of our members are now being contacted.

For information about PIP rules and claiming, go to our PIP guide.
