    HI and welcome,

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

    PIP maybe possible but it's not awarded based on a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. Relevant evidence will be needed to support a claim and a face to face assessment is most likely. A successful claim could take several months, maybe more.

    If you're one of those that are still claiming DLA then do be aware that a claim for PIP will end your DLA claim once a decision on the PIP has been made. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/sick-or-disabled-people-and-carers/pip/before-claiming/how-much-you-get-and-how-long/

    For any other benefits then it will depend on your circumstances and with no information it's impossible to give any further advice. You may want to visit and advice centre near you for a full benefits check.
