    Most likely not, as the PIP acessment is about your abilities and not your medical condition or disability. Have you taken a self test to see how you would fare against the PIP descriptors.

    Hi @odonnell, PIP is awarded based on how a condition affects your life, rather than the condition itself. That said, we've had many community members with depression who've successfully claimed PIP. If you're interested in taking the self-test mentioned above, you can find it here.

    Wishing you all the best with your application, do keep us updated and let us know if we can be of assistance!
