PIP, better known as Personal Independence Payment, is government money given to those that suffer
with long-term ill health or disability. You must be aged between 16 and 64 to qualify, anyone
outside of this age group could be eligible for DLA, Disability Living Allowance.
To be eligible for DLA, the candidate must be under 16 or born before the 8th April 1948 and have an
Do to Government reform on 8th April 2013, everyone aged between 16-64 receiving DLA were
reassessed to qualify for PIP. The purpose of the allowance in its simplest form remains the
same, the allowance provides financial support for those suffering with long-term illness or
disability. However, the assessment for this allowance has changed.
PIP involves a more objective and thorough face to face assessment. As well as this you must
undertake frequent reassessments in-order to continue receiving the allowance. The amount you
receive can alter during these assessments.
The DLA allowance was calculated by three different rates of care required:
Depending on which category you fell into during the application process would determine the
amount of money you would receive for support.
In contrast to this, the rate of PIP depends on how your personal condition affects your
lifestyle, it is not based on the condition itself. To establish this, the government carry out
a face-to-face assessment and calculate the amount you will receive. To ensure the correct
support is given always, your condition will be regularly reassessed. The assessment information
will be collected through statements and observations of the individual, social workers, carers
and other professionals supporting the candidate.
How the Motability Scheme works is that it allows disabled and ill people to lease a brand-new
vehicle, scooter or powered wheelchair by exchanging their Motability benefit/allowance.
Depending on what allowance you receive and your allowance amount will defer whether you are
eligible to exchange this allowance for a Motability vehicle. To be eligible for the Motability
Scheme you must receive one of the following:
There is no current age limit on the scheme, however you must have at least 12 months remaining
on your award. If you’re not sure if you are eligible you can contact our fully trained
Motability Specialists at your local Sandicliffe branch for more information and support.

In April 2017, PIP (Personal Independent Payment) will undergo a second reform review by the
government. The government are planning to change the assessment criteria for aids and
appliances that needs to be met to receive the benefit. The benefit was designed to support
those who need help affording the extra costs that disability can cause.
Since the roll out in April 2013, there has been sufficient evidence to support the claim that
often, people were receiving the benefit for simply owning household, NHS provided or one off
low cost items that could be used as an aid. These items include things such as a bed or chair,
that can aid in helping someone to get dressed. As PIP was introduced to support with extra
cost, the government feel receiving this benefit to cover every day, free, low and minimal cost
items is unfair and is taking resource away from people who need the support the most.
Under the current PIP assessment criteria, a claimant could receive £55 a week by using an aid in
just 4 activities. Personal Independent Payment is monitored continually to make sure it is
effective in its intent to supply help and support to those who truly need it.
If you are currently receiving PIP, it’s possible you may have to undergo another review.
Following this, if your circumstances change and you are currently on the Motability Scheme, you
will need to contact your Motability provider as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can call
Motability directly on 0300 456 4566.
