Personal Independence Payments

Recommended Posts

As things stand, single amputees will find it hard to get the new mobility component of the PIP (Personal Independence Payment), whilst bilateral amps will only be able to get the standard rate ... this compares to blind people who will be able to get the enhanced rate. This would have a big impact upon an amps mobility if, for example, they have a Motability car.

However, you now have a chance to have your say, and to hopefully get changes made to the assessment criteria.

Therefore, it is essential that you read the following document and reply by the 30th April 2012 ~ PIP assessment thresholds and consultation.
