Has anyone ever been awarded PIP for psoriatic arthritis. ? I was told you couldn’t get it as it is classed as a auto immune problem.

    Hello @Vonny58


     I wanted to wish you a warm welcome to the community.

     

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m sure you’ll find it to be a positive outlet, feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions about the community at all then don’t hesitate to ask.


    Regarding your query, it would depend how your condition impacts you. You can view a list of the PIP descriptors over on this page, it might be worth taking a look through them to see if the way in which your condition impacts you fits within any of them.


    I have moved your discussion over to our PIP category :)

    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis. It's how those conditions affect you against the 12 PIP activities. You can't compare anyone else to yourself because we are all affected differently by these conditions.
    Have a read of this. https://pipinfo.net/ You may also want to get some expert advice to get that you can score enough points needed for an award. https://advicelocal.uk/


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
