    Hi @lisabrazil80

    I am not a qualified or trained benefits advisor - but I think you could give it a try - why not?

    It sounds like you would have some difficulties that would relate to both elements of PIP. Daily living and Mobility.

    Why not contact your local Citizen's Advice Bureau or another organisation to help you with this. They could fill in your forms and help you understand everything!

    Good luck :smile:

    Hi @lisabrazil80
    Welcome to the community, there is information here on the CAB site

    What the question is asking

    This question is about how your condition makes it difficult for you to manage everyday purchases and transactions.

    This means things like:

    • paying in shops and restaurants

    • budgeting for and paying your bills, for example utility bills, credit card bills

    • budgeting for bigger things, such as a TV or sofa

    It’s about the decisions you need to make rather than whether you can physically get money out of a purse or wallet to pay for things.

    Activity Descriptors Points

    a. Can manage complex budgeting decisions unaided. 0

    b. Needs prompting or assistance to be able to make complex budgeting decisions. 2

    c. Needs prompting or assistance to be able to make simple budgeting decisions. 4

    d. Cannot make any budgeting decisions at all. 6
