Hello everyone, I have a question about claiming pip, I have a current award for daily living due to the amount of help I receive for my bipolar autism and fibro. My son who’s 8 also has low functioning autism and is only attending school for half days while they find him a different school that can cater for his needs ect and it’s been mentioned to me a few times why I’m not claiming disability for my son, but I thought I couldn’t as I already claim for it myself? Am I correct in thinking this or should I be claiming for him also? Thank you for any advice given ☺️
