PIP: You could get up to £608 per month if you wear glasses or have other sight conditions

PIP, or Personal Independence Payment, offers assistance to those who are living with a long-term health condition or disability. These conditions can often come with additional costs which PIP can help to cover, removing stress and strain for those who claim. The important thing to note when it comes to PIP, however, is that people receive the sum based on the severity of their condition, rather than the condition itself.

Being ill or having a disability, it explains, can often make life more expensive.

Individuals may be more familiar with Disability Living Allowance as a payment, but this is now considered to be a “legacy benefit”.

PIP is taking its place for most people, and therefore understanding whether one can make a claim will be key.

To be eligible, a person needs to be aged 16 or over, and usually have not reached state pension age.

Britons can expect to be assessed to find out how much PIP support they are entitled to.

The sum is split into two key parts, the daily living element and the mobility component.

Whether someone receives one or both, is once again based on how their condition impacts them.

The weekly rate for the daily living part is either £60.00 or £89.50, while for the mobility part it is either £23.70 or £62.55.

As a result then, those claiming the higher amount of both elements could get support worth approximately £608 per month.

To claim PIP for the first time, Britons will need to call the Department for Work and Pensions, with the relevant phone number accessible through the Government’s website.
