Just wondering on reading pip my wife suffers from bad depression and doesn't like leave in house on her own and also after having our little girl 2 years ago and suffering a third degree tare when she need to go toilet she has to be within seconds of a toilet or she will soul her. Self any ideas whether she maybe entitled to pip or any thing else as only time she really gets out for day is when I'm off work witch isn't often been a prison officer or when her parents come over

    Hi @webbo1979 and a very warm welcome to the community, glad to have you around!

    You may find the benefit calculator a very useful tool! Also, Scope has a whole page that explains the benefit processes which you may want to look at. More specifically there is the PIP Self- Test online which you can do on behalf of your wife. However, this is just a guideline as an assessor may score you differently.

    If this doesn't help enough then Scope's helpline is available to help with which benefits may be helpful. You can ring them at 0808 800 3333. Similarly, Citizen's Advice may be worth looking at.

    Have a lovely evening!
