an adviser guide to personal independence payment regulations & case law

Choose from the options above for details of regulations and case law relating to the personal independence payment assessment. You can search by activity, issue or health condition to find out more about the legal framework and how the Upper Tribunal has interpreted the law.

We hope that pipinfo will help advisers in assisting people to make a new claim for personal independence payment, and in challenging decisions to refuse, or award a lower rate of, the benefit.

Note: in April 2024, the government launched Modernising support for independent living: the health and disability green paper which seeks views on proposals to change the eligibility criteria for personal independence payment, remove the assessment process for specific health conditions or disabilities, and explore alternative approaches to ongoing cash support such as one-off grants or vouchers. The consultation closes on 23 July 2024.
