Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit designed to help with the extra costs resulting from disability or long-term ill health. PIP rates range from £21.80 to £139.75 per week, depending on how your condition affects you. 

To quote from the official government website, “you must have a long-term condition or disability and face difficulties with ‘daily living’ or getting around (and) you must have had these difficulties for 3 months and expect them to last for at least 9 months (to be eligible for PIP).”

PIP is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for all people born after 8 April 1948 who are aged 16 and over. Rollout of this replacement is currently ongoing until the end of 2018.
