I'm on pip, my wife works 30 hrs and is on working tax credits and applied for pip because of arthritic hands, checked her bank account and there's £600 off hmrc, but no letter has arrived yet?. I'm thinking if she's been accepted for pip will it affect her WTC and if not how much will she receive extra off pip, thanks guys

    Hi @Macap, I'm no expert either but sounds promising!

    If you're unsure, you could try giving the DWP a call to see if you can get any further information on your claim- the number should be on your previous letters. Good luck, and do keep us updated!

    Your local CAB or welfare rights, if they have available appointments. Ring them on Monday to see if they can help. If not there's guides on the internet that will help you. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/sick-or-disabled-people-and-carers/pip/help-with-your-claim/fill-in-form/

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Standard daily living PIP is £57.30 per week. She'll need to ring HMRC as this may entitle her to a disability element of working tax credits.
