Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit for people aged 16 to 64. It is for people who have problems moving around or looking after themselves.
If you are aged 65 or over and making a new claim, you should claim Attendance Allowance instead of PIP. If you have received PIP before the age of 65, you can continue to get it.
PIP has replaced 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.
You will also have to apply for PIP if you are getting DLA, unless you were born on or before 8 April 1948. It is important to tell the Department for Work and Pensions if your circumstances change.
