    Hello Mazg and welcome

    Have a look at the B&W self test for PIP

    PIP is a non means tested benefit for people that have functional difficulties

    Hi mazg,

    If you are working full time you are unlikely to be entitled to any means tested benefits so the only non-means tested benefit that you can consider is PIP - as CR says, take the self test and apply if you think you score enough points.
    To start a PIP claim you'll need to call 0800 917 2222 - more information here:
