Personal Independence Payments
Personal Independent Payments
My wife is being switched from DLA to PIP and one of the questions asked was whether she had been out of the UK for more than four weeks in the past three years. We hadn't, but rather puzzled why this should be a factor?
We visit Spain occasionally so wanting to be sure of the facts we looked at the chat line on your web-site and noted an old thread advising that claimants on PIP can spend 13 weeks abroad. Just to confirm, is this either in one go or a total of multiple visits in any one year period, or periods of 13 weeks or less, irrespective of the total in any one year, so long as they are temporary visits?
We understand that, presumably, if one moves abroad permanently, the benefit would stop. Is this correct?
