    PIP is a benefit to help with daily living activities and help with mobility, as a regular poster you will already know this and it is not connected with UC. To apply you are best doing a self test of the PIP descriptors to see how well you fair in meeting each descriptor before applying.

    Wilko is correct, PIP isn't part of UC. UC is a means tested benefit and PIP isn't means tested. Your PIP payments will continue as normal.

    You read incorrectly. PIP won't be part of UC because PIP isn't a means tested benefit like UC is.

    Why can’t pip have a journal like universal credit. So when your waiting for your  decision you can log on to your journal and see any updates, instead of stressing for 3/4 months
