    Hi @navinraj1954

    Back in April 2017 the Government made changes to PIP that tightened up access to the payment for many disabled people. We campaigned against these changes, which made a crude distinction between people with physical impairments and mental health problems.

    Then, in December 2017, the High Court ruled that some of these changes were discriminatory and should be scrapped.

    The Government last month said that it won’t be appealing this decision and that it will be reviewing all decisions relating to PIP awards since the payment  was introduced.  They estimate that up to 220,000 disabled people will receive backdated payments where necessary.

    This is a welcome decision, as we know PIP is a lifeline for disabled people. In research we carried out with over 500 recipients of either PIP or DLA, 58 per cent said that even a small reduction in their PIP award would have a significant impact on their ability to live independently.

    What does this mean for disabled people?

    • The Government will review all PIP assessment reports to identify individuals who could be eligible for a backdated payment.
    • This includes people who were not eligible for PIP following an assessment.
    • No one will need to go through a repeat assessment.
    • The Government has not yet announced when the review will start, or in what order claims will be reviewed.
