    Hi Rocklobster and welcome

    PIP does not entitle you to free NHS services. you need ESA with an IR element for this. However you may apply for an HC2 cert. if on a low income

    PIP mobility enhanced rate for free car tax, standard for 50% reduction
    Blue Badge if you have 8 points or more in the Moving around descriptor


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
