What is PIP?
It’s to help with the extra costs of living with a long-term health condition or disability. It is not means-tested, or affected by earnings or savings.
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.
Can I apply for PIP?
You need to be aged between 16 and State Pension age to apply.
You need to have daily living or mobility needs and need extra help because of an illness, disability or mental health condition, to apply.
If you’ve reached State Pension age, you’ll need to apply for Attendance Allowance instead of PIP. You cannot use this for the Scheme.
If you live in Scotland, see our page about Adult Disability Payment.
