Thousands of pensioners to benefit from PIP assessment overhaul

 

Unnecessary reassessments for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) are today (9 July 2019) being scrapped for around 290,000 disabled pensioners.

 

Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd first announced in March that people receiving PIP who have reached State Pension age will no longer have their awards regularly reviewed, instead moving to a light touch review at 10 years.

PIP replaces DLA so it's possible you might have to,  were you under 65 on 8 April 2013?  If you were you will have to claim PIP. and you must do so within 4 weeks.  Think Unclebulgaria will know more specific details.


We could do with some help from you.
