What is Personal Independence Payment?
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with the extra costs of disability or long-term health conditions for people aged 16 to 64. It is a non-means tested benefit. So getting it doesn’t matter how much you earn, or whether you have savings or cash in the bank.
Am I eligible?
To get PIP you must:
- need help with everyday tasks such as washing, dressing preparing food or getting around, or need help with both
- have needed this help for at least 3 months and expect to need it for at least another 9 months, unless a terminal diagnosis exists.
If you need help with a claim get in touch by filling in the form below and one of our benefits advisors will contact you. Or you can contact us on 0330 303 3000

The Council Tax Disability Reduction Scheme
If there is a room or other extra space in your property that is needed by a disabled occupant, the Council Tax Disability Reduction Scheme may help you to get a reduction in your Council Tax by one full tax band.
This might be an extra room to store equipment, a purpose-built bathroom or kitchen for the disabled person or a home that has been built to accommodate a wheelchair inside.
