It means you can get financial support if you struggle with moving around or everyday activities, such as getting dressed. Applicants can get between £23.60 and £151.40 a week from the day they turn 16 until retirement age. Unlike Universal Credit, PIP is not means-tested, meaning you qualify regardless of any income or tax contributions. However, you must have a health condition or disability that affects your day-to-day life and should be expected to continue for at least nine months. You need to have lived in England, Scotland or Wales for at least two of the previous three years to be eligible, reports the Mirror. How much support is available? Universal Credit was introduced in 2013 to bring several benefits such as unemployment and housing support into one single payment. The standard Universal Credit allowance starts at £342.72 but you could also be entitled to up to £151 extra through PIP if you have an illness, disability or mental health condition. PIP is made up of two parts: daily living and mobility. To begin with, your condition will be assessed by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). They will assess how you cope with tasks such as preparing and eating food, getting dressed and making financial decisions. The weekly rate could be £59.

The weekly mobility payment is either £23.60 or £62.25, depending on how hard it is for you to get around. It is based on criteria such as how well you follow directions and if you can stand and walk unaided. PIP is monthly, with payments assessed once a year.
