Can I claim PIP?

amyfibroamyfibro Member Posts: 11 Listener
Hi, ive recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but due to my non Hodgkins lymphoma diagnosis (now in remission) symptoms were brushed aside. I have been suffering with pain for many years and just 3 months ago i was diagnosed. Can i make a claim to pip so soon?

    Hi @amyfibro, and a warm welcome to the community!

    It may be a good idea to have a look at this PIP online self-test to get an idea of your entitlement. Have a go, and do come back to us with any questions.

    Hi,

    PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out the daily activities against the PIP descriptors. Take a look at the link Pippa posted about. Evidence will be needed to support a claim.
