The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) recently released a series of four new videos about Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to help people understand what the benefit is, who it is for, how to claim and the assessment process.
The YouTube videos are accompanied by a new online document that explains five key things people should know about PIP, however, there is one more, essential thing people in Scotland need to know about the non-means tested benefit.
New claims for PIP have been replaced by Adult Disability Payment for people living in Scotland since August 2022. The devolved disability benefit for people over 16 and under State Pension age follows similar eligibility criteria to PIP, so the other five key points may be useful in helping you make a decision on whether or not you should make a claim - find out more here.
The DWP's YouTube videos signpost to the dedicated PIP pages on GOV.UK where there is more detailed information, including the process for people nearing the end of life.Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
