Letter: Ask the government to get a grip on PIP
Date published: 18 September 2017
The Disability Benefits Consortium
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit designed to help disabled people manage the extra costs of their disability.
When PIP works it works well in providing vital financial support to disabled people, but new research by eighty disability charities has found that for too many people, PIP isn’t working.
When it fails people find it stressful, that it makes their condition worse and that it leaves them struggling financially.
Most MPs aren’t aware of the significant problems with PIP.
The Disability Benefits Consortium is asking supporters to write to their MP to give them the facts about PIP and ask them to contact the Minister on their behalf.
