mobility very hard to get vs daily living on PIP
But this report shows the stark reality. That it is extremely hard to get PIP for mobility if you dont also have daily living needs.
The report also clearly states getting mobility is much harder than daily living, only a measly 3% of claimants get mobility as standalone, thats shockingly low, the amount who get daily living alone is over 25%. That 3% is also 3% of awarded claims, not 3% of registrants.
At the end of April 2019, 2,114,000 people had a PIP claim in payment, an increase of 64,000 (3%) on the previous quarterly figure (January 2019). 2,090,000 (99%) were assessed under normal rules.
For normal rules claims:
27% received Daily Living Award only, 3% received Mobility Award only, and 70% received both.
60% received at least one component at the enhanced rate, with 30% receiving the highest level of awards (‘enhanced/enhanced’ rates) for both Mobility and Daily Living components.
26% have been in payment for between 2 and up to 3 years
