Personal Independence Payment overview

Do you or your partner suffer from any disabilities or illnesses?

Personal Independence Payment is a benefit to help people with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or disability. It is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance for adults aged 16 or over and who were aged under 65 on 8th April 2013.

An award of Personal Independence Payment can dramatically increase your income – so if you or your partner or a child aged 16 or over have an illness or disability, do contact an experienced adviser to see if it is worth making a claim.

Personal Independence Payment can be paid to people regardless of whether they are in work or not working and regardless of their income or savings.

Go to the ‘Personal Independence Payment’ page to find out more and if you are currently on Disability Living Allowance how you might be affected by this change.
