An introduction to the Personal Independence Payments (PIP)
Personal Independence Payments (PIP) replaced Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for all working age claimants from June 2013 applying to all new claims after this date; existing DLA claims for working age claimants have now been transferred to PIP.
This course explains the main features of PIP - the claims and assessment processes, qualifying criteria and rates of award and how these differ from the existing DLA benefit. We will also examine some of the issues relating to entitlement that have come up following the introduction of this new benefit, particularly the recent changes relating to mental health.
Having completed this training participants should achieve a good understanding of PIP to a level that they can confidently assist to complete PIP forms.
