If you are claiming Personal Independence Payment, the DWP now has a website checker to help you | 20 July 2016

We are currently dealing with a lot of queries and news items about the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), including the difficulties people are facing when transferring from DLA to PIP. It’s now worth noting that the DWP has produced a useful website checker that you can fill in to find out if you can claim PIP and what will happen if you apply for PIP.

You can use this tool to check:

* If PIP affects you or someone you care for

* How PIP will affect your child

* When you can make a new claim for PIP or you are transferring from DLA to PIP
