Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a new benefit for people aged between 16 and 64. It is for people who have problems moving around and looking after themselves.
You can claim PIP whether you are working or not. If you get PIP it does not reduce other benefits. In some cases, your other benefits may actually increase.
If you are aged 65 or over, you should claim Attendance Allowance instead of PIP.
PIP replaces an older benefit called Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for adults. If you are aged between 16 and 64 and making a new claim, you will need to apply for PIP. People who already get DLA will be reassessed for PIP at some point before the end of 2017, or the end of 2018 if you live in Northern Ireland.
