Personal independence payment

This was made availabe via the Disability Alliance: www.disabilityalliance.org

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.
