Personal Independence Payment (PIP) can help you with some of the extra costs if you have a long term ill-health or disability.
You can get between £23.20 and £148.85 a week if you're aged 16 or over and have not yet reached State Pension age. The amount you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.
You’ll be assessed by a health professional to work out the level of help you can get. Your rate will be regularly reviewed to make sure you’re getting the right support.
If you disagree with the decision you can ask the DWP to look at it again. This is known as a Mandatory Reconsideration. If you are unhappy with the result of the Mandatory Reconsideration, you can appeal directly to Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service.
