Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

PIP is a new benefit for people aged 16-64 who have a disability, physical impairment or mental health condition.

It will replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) but more people will qualify for PIP than DLA.

PIP aims to support people that are experiencing difficulties with daily activities and mobility that are likely to last for 12 months or more.

We want to ensure that patients who have problems with daily living, such as eating or preparing food, taking medication, moving around or managing money, are aware of this benefit and how to claim it.

Posters and leaflets promoting PIP have been produced by NHSGGC and are being distributed throughout our services.

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde have put in place a range of initiatives on money worries and employment which can make a substantial difference to vulnerable patients and families. For more information click here.
