The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have recently announced a further rollout of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) reassessments to several new postcode areas from the 30th March 2015. They have produced the map below to show the new areas and the rollout so far.
Reassessment means that the following current Disability Living Allowance (DLA) recipients will be invited to claim PIP:
- those with fixed period DLA awards ending ;
- young people turning 16;
- those where there is a report of a change in the DLA claimant’s health condition or disability; and
- existing DLA claimants aged 16-64 who wish to make a PIP claim.
More information about the design of PIP can be found on the gov.uk website. We have produced information about the assessment process for PIP. You can find this information on this blog, as well as on our website.
