Am currently living with a partner who has had a severe stroke and is currently receiving pip at the enhanced rate.I myself have been diagnosed with emphasemia and find it hard to walk to far without seriously getting out of breath.Having a metal replacement hip doesn't help.would I be eligible for PIP as well without effecting my partners money?

    A very warm welcome.

    Your potentiomal claim for PIP, witll have no impact on your partner's PIP award.

    I suggest you contact Scope helpline for advice and assistance in making a claim for PIP.

    Putting it simply terms it is how your condition, affects your ability to carry out daily living activities.

    Keep us informed, we are here to help and support you.

    Best wishes
