Help benefits campaigners build a picture of what is happening to PIP claims | 21 January 2016

The Disability Benefits Consortium is running a survey to record the experiences of people who have applied for Personal Independence Payment (PIP). It should take about 20 minutes to complete online.

The organisation – a coalition of about 50 different charities and other organisations campaigning for improvements to the benefits system – say the best results will be achieved if the survey is completed by people who know the outcome of their applications. If you need to take a break whilst completing the survey, use the ‘save and continue later’ button at the top of each page.

Dr Charles Shepherd, medical adviser to the ME Association, this morning asked people who use our very busy Facebook group to take part in the survey.

The survey starts here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2253593/565b32edcaeb
