Has Anyone Who Works Applied For PIP Benefit

Has Anyone Who Works Applied For PIP Benefit

I have been told to apply for pip by doctors has anyone been successful

Pip isn't based on diagnosis but how your daily activities are affected by the illness. It is split into self care and mobility components and you get awarded points in each category. If you get enough points you get awarded it. The main thing they look at is frequency so how often does that happen? If it happens more often than not you will get awarded pip. It is hard to get. Good luck

The mobility component is very hard to get but that's one half. You can get it on self care so this is about cooking, toileting, dressing etc. There is a website which helps to fill in the form by going through the points on the questions. I'll try to remember what it is called.
