    Hi Jackson and welcome

    PIP is a non means tested benefit. It makes no difference whether you claim other benefits or work full time. If you meet the criteria for an award it will still be paid

    Hi Jackson1,

    Entitlement to PIP is about your functional ability to do the ten daily living tasks and the two mobility tasks. I've read plenty of PIP assessment reports and none of them ever mention the claimant's other income so I wouldn't worry about it.

    You've posted on a thread that is more than 2 years old. and the person that started the thread with the question hasn't returned in all that time. Lots of people successfully claim PIP while working, it just depends on your job and the reasons why you're claiming PIP.
