    Hi @samuk, give the online benefits calculator a try if you're not sure. PIP isn't means-tested so I imagine there wouldn't be any issues with applying for that too.

    Hi @samuk

    I'm not sure I understand your question - are you already a Jobseeker and you want to know if you can claim PIP in addition to this?

    To claim PIP, your health condition has to have had a significant affect on either your Daily Living (your ability to function normally day to day) or your mobility, for at least 3 months, and has to be expected to persist for at least another 9 months.

    The website benefits and work have a good PIP 'self-test' which you could try:-
    https://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/personal-independence-payment-pip/pip-self-test
    Does that answer your query?...

    Hi @samuk, have a look at the link Mary provided above to the PIP self test- this is a good starting point to see whether you may be eligible.
