What is Personal Independence Payment (PIP)?

It’s an allowance to help with the extra costs of living with a long-term health condition or disability.

It's not means-tested, or affected by earnings or savings.

It has two parts:

  • The daily living part
  • The mobility part

Each has two rates:

  • Lower rate
  • Higher rate

If you’re awarded the higher rate mobility part of PIP, with at least 12 months left, you’re eligible to apply for the Motability Scheme.

PIP is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged between 16 and State Pension age.

In Scotland, PIP is being replaced with Adult Disability Payment, which will be administered by Social Security Scotland rather than the DWP.
