How do I claim PIP?

To make a new claim for PIP, call the DWP for free on 0800 917 22 22 or if you use a textphone 0800 917 77 77.

Please note: If you're aged between 16-64 on or after 8 April 2013 you will be invited to claim PIP if previously on DLA. However, If you're already 65 or over on 8 April 2013, then you will not be reassessed for PIP and will remain on DLA.

We have produced a factsheet on PIP that contains lots of useful information and more details about how to make an effective claim for it:
