    Hello 

    My name is Maria, and i work for the Benefits Training Co., we work with Scope.

    The simple answer is yes, you can apply for PIP.  This is because PIP is not about what your illness is, but how it effects your ability to care for your self and how it effects your mobility.

    The Scope website has a simple explanation of what PIP is and there is a self test. This can be found in the support and information section, link:  http://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/money/pip
