Hi everyone
I'm just wondering if anyone who is working full time has ever been awarded PIP with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
Thank you

    Hi SuziSwanton and welcome

    PIP is non means tested so it is quite possible to work full time and receive an award. However as PIP is based around functionality difficulties for more than 50% of the time an award would only be made if the reasons for the award were not in conflict with the work requirement. So much would depend on the type of work undertaken and will vary from case to case
