    Hi there 

    It wont affect your carers however you need to look at the PIP descriptors before to make sure you would score enough points 

    Tbh I have read quite a few people who are deaf being turned down but it all depends on how your affected against the descriptors 

    You can get PIP and still get carers for caring for another person as long as the care you give doesnt go against reasons you claim PIP

    Hi @chantel8rod and welcome to our community.  

    I've moved your post to our PIP, DLA and AA discussion board and think you might find reading Scope's 'Completing your PIP Claim Form' webpage handy.  

    To access free independent advice about claiming PIP, you can also visit Advice Local.  If you enter your postcode and select 'Welfare Benefits' from the drop-down list, a list of local organisations will appear on the next page :) 

    Good luck and please let us know how you get on.
