    Hi,

    PIP is not a means tested benefit and won't affect any other benefits, including UC. It's disregarded as savings for 52 weeks.

    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.
