New PIP rules from 16 March 2017
I have just read in the latest Disability Rights newsletter and in The Mirror online that from 16 March certain medical conditions, including diabetes, dementia, learning disability and anxiety, will no longer qualify for PIP. While Tribunals have criticised the DWP for applying PIP rules too tightly, the DWP have decided that Tribunals have been too 'generous' at appeals, so have excluded certain conditions as the only method to stop qualification for PIP! Thin end of the wedge?
