    Hi and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    I'm glad your sister is able to work. However, i'm unsure of why you posted that comment. Please don't accuse others of being lazy and claiming a disability benefit. There are lots of invisible conditions out there where people claim a benefit because of the way that conditions affect them.

    Those that claim PIP do not have a work coach because PIP isn't about not being able to work. My daughter is a student and claims Enhanced rate for both parts of PIP but she can walk, talk, dress, run and bath herself. She claims it because she has Autism and a learning disability which are both invisible conditions.
