    Yes, you can claim again. Unlike ESA you can do this straight away - you don't have to wait and you don't need a change of circumstances. Because you can't backdate PIP (you can't get it paid for a date before you claim) I recommend that you make your new claim as soon as possible. If you can, get some help with filling out the form, for example from a Citizens Advice Bureau.

    It's also a good idea to look at the activities in this self-test so you can see what they are looking for on the PIP2 form, & later at the medical. I really hope you get the right result this time.
