Personal Independence Payment (20th Jul 12 at 1:26pm UTC)
From 8 April 2013 the Government is introducing a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for eligible working age people aged 16 to 64.

The Government is committed to supporting disabled people to lead independent and active lives. It recognises that disabled people can face additional challenges to leading independent lives and is committed to maintaining an extra-cost, non-means-tested disability benefit to support disabled people.

PIP and Blue Badge comments by 2 Oct

A Government consultation about Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and its effect on eligibility for a Blue Badge (BB) will close on 2 October.

The Department of Transport’s preferred option for bringing the process in line with new legislation is not expected to significantly affect the overall numbers of people entitled to BB.

Currently, people are entitled to a BB if they receive a certain component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) that relates to mobility. The DLA is being replaced by the PIP and so the Department needs to look at the way the BB system is administered to ensure a smooth transition when the new benefits structure is introduced.

The consultation outlines the options under consideration. They are:

Option 1 – no legislative link between eligibility for a Blue Badge and eligibility to PIP,
Option 2 – establishing a legislative link between Blue Badge eligibility and the enhanced mobility component of PIP,
Option 3 – establishing a legislative link between Blue Badge eligibility and those who score 8 points or more within the ‘Moving Around’ activity within PIP. This assesses a person’s physical ability to get around.

The Department’s preferred option is to ensure decisions are consistent, using the criteria in the new PIP system that most closely correspond to those currently used by local authorities to carry out their own assessments (Option 3).

Taking DLA away from disabled people is a dangerous experiment
Disabled people need extra help with playing their part in society. That's at risk under the personal independence payment scheme

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jan/14/disabled-people-dla-dangerous-experiment

"Wheelchair user Jane Young writes that the Government’s decision to make last-minute changes – after the end of the consultation period – to eligibility for the higher rate mobility component of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), which replaces Disability Living Allowance (DLA) from April, will mean thousands of people will be left unable to get around independently except to places within "easy wheeling" distance"

The timetable for the introduction of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the benefit being rolled out to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA), has been revised.
Originally, existing DLA claimants who report a change in their DLA care or mobility needs would have been asked to claim PIP from Monday 7 October. This date has now been put back to Monday 25 October
