Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs of living with a long-term health condition or disability if you are aged between 16 and 64. The rate you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.
You will need an assessment to work out the level of help you get and your rate will be regularly assessed to ensure that you are getting the right support.
To make a claim for PIP, contact the DWP on 0800 917 2222 (Textphone 0800 917 7777), Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm. Further information about the claim process can be found here.
