The Government has this week published several documents – including draft regulations and assessment criteria – that further set out its proposals for replacing DLA with the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) from 2013.
This factsheet gives a basic introduction to the proposed personal independence payment (PIP).
It is based on what we know so far and will be updated as we get more information.
There is a useful glossary at the end.
You can find out detailed information about the current benefit system in Disability Alliance’s Disability Rights Handbook, available to buy at www.disabilityalliance.org/drh36.htm.

Multiple Sclerosis Research Training and Education (MS Research) is committed to research into the management of MS with specific emphasis on difficult to treat symptoms like tremor and failing mobility.
Our current work is about FES (functional electrical stimulation) to overcome foot drop, overcoming fatigue and we hope to provide more effective solutions to sudden unwanted movements of the arms or tremor and ataxia which make the ordinary daily movements very difficult!

On Saturday 7th May, @DaylightGambler will be walking 40km (the furthest distance he has ever walked in a single day) across the South Downs in aid of MS Research, a dedicated Multiple Sclerosis (MS) charity committed to research that will make a real difference to those who have MS and those who share their lives.…
@DaylightGambler has a passion for walking through the British Countryside. Please read about it in his own words which show that Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can take many forms and touch many lives. MS is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults – around 100,000 people in the UK have the condition. Following his own diagnosis, it is very important for @DaylightGambler to take this challenge and to anyone to give some support and push him well over his target on Justgiving!
