Personal Independence Payment - PIP

You can get PIP whether you’re working or not.


You must be aged 16 or over and usually have not reached State Pension age to claim.


You must also have a health condition or disability where you have had difficulties with daily living or getting around (or both) for three months.


You may get the daily living part of PIP if you need help more than half of the time with things like:

  • preparing or eating food
  • washing, bathing and using the toilet
  • dressing and undressing
  • reading and communicating
  • managing your medicines or treatments
  • making decisions about money
  • engaging with other people

You may get the mobility part of PIP if you need help going out or moving around.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Point System

Points are awarded for each activity, depending on the person/child's ability and how much help they need to do it. The points scored for each activity in a section are then added together.



If the score is between 8 and 11 points for their daily living needs in the PIP test, they will get the standard rate of the daily living component. To get the enhanced rate of daily living component they must score 12 points or more.



If the score between 8 and 11 points for their mobility needs, they will get the standard rate of the mobility component. To get the enhanced rate of mobility component they must score 12 points or more.



The Department for Work and Pension decides what is scored in the PIP test after looking at the claim form, the documents sent with the claim form, the health professional's notes from the medical assessment.



You can check what might be the score points by completing the PIP self test on the Benefits and Work website on the button below.
