OverviewYou may be able to get help with some of the extra costs caused by long term ill-health or disability. You can get PIP whether you’re working or not. If you’re aged 16 to 64 you could get between £22.65 and £145.35 a week by claiming PIP.
EligibilityApplicant must be aged 16 to 64 and have a health condition or disability where you:
- Have had difficulties with daily living or getting around (or both) for 3 months
- Expect these difficulties to continue for at least 9 months (unless you’re terminally ill with less than 6 months to live)
- Live in another EU or EEA country or Switzerland – only get help from daily living needs
- Are a member or family member of the Armed Forces
ConditionPIP is made up of 2 parts. You’ll be assessed by a health professional to work out the level of help you can get. Your rate will be regularly reviewed to make sure you’re getting the right support. Whether you get one or both of these and how much you’ll get depends on how severely your condition affects you.
(1) Daily living difficultiesYou 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
(2) Mobility difficultiesYou may get the mobility part of PIP if you need help going out or moving around.
What you’ll getPersonal Independence Payment (PIP) is usually paid every 4 weeks. It’s tax free and you can get it whether you’re in or out of work.
Daily living partThe weekly rate for the daily living part of PIP is either £57.30 or £85.60.
Mobility partThe weekly rate for the mobility part of PIP is either £22.65 or £59.75.
Terminal illnessYou’ll get the higher daily living part if you’re not expected to live more than 6 months. The rate of the mobility part depends on your needs.
Other helpYou or your carer might also qualify for other financial help, for example Carer’s Allowance, or help with housing or transport costs.
If you get PIP and you work, you might also be able to get the disability element of Working Tax Credit (up to £3,090 a year, or up to £4,420 if your disability is severe).
