    Hi @lynnh,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    Have you had a look at our benefits calculator? It's a handy little tool which can help you find out which benefits you're entitled to.

    There's also some more information about PIP and eligibility on the Gov.UK website.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch!

    Don't be overly surprised if you have to fight for it. I'm partially sighted with a few complex conditions plus other health issues. I failed for the most ridiculous of reasons. When you register, you get given a bundle of papers which states you're registered. I've got no idea where mine is. (it's 9 years old and my vision has changed a lot since then) Because I couldn't produce it, I'm supposedly not registered. My GP says I am... (I've moved 3 times since then and wouldn't have a clue where it is)

    RNIB have some advice on their website.

    Have you gone through the criteria to see where you score points? It's how you are half the time. But as I found, they based it on how I was on the day.
