Public consultation launched on Personal Independence Payments

The government has launched a public consultation into how the use of aids and appliances is accounted for during assessments for Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

PIP is designed to help people with the extra costs associated with their disability, so it is necessary for the assessment criteria to be able to identify correctly the support that a claimant requires.

This consultation closes at 29 January 2016
