Personal Independence Payment
Understanding Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
The DWP has developed a series of five short videos for people who are about to claim (or are thinking of claiming) PIP, an overview of the claim process.
Is PIP for you or someone you know? This video focuses on the steps before the claim and an overview of who might be eligible.
Claiming for PIP This video looks at the claim process – how you make a claim and the actions you’ll need to take.
Supporting information for PIP This video focuses on the supporting information you’ll need to send us and why it’s important.
The face-to-face assessment This video gives an overview of what to expect if you are asked to attend a face-to-face assessment with an independent, qualified health professional.
The PIP decision – key things to know This video explains how we’ll let you know whether you’ve been awarded PIP or not and any next steps. It also outlines that if you are awarded PIP, it’s important to report any change of circumstances, to ensure the level of benefit you are getting is right.
The videos are available with British Sign Language translation and are accessed here.
