Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

Young people over the age of 16 cannot claim Disability Living Allowance (DLA). Instead you must apply for a Personal Independence Payment (PIP). PIP is gradually replacing DLA for people aged 16 - 64 years old. You can claim PIP if your disability or health condition means that one or both of the following are true:
  • You need help looking after yourself
  • You have difficulty walking
