PIP Contact Number 0843 455 0087.

All PIP claims start by making a call to the PIP Contact Number. Understanding Personal independence Payment, PIP is a benefit that allows people with disability to get help with their needs. Individuals living with physical impairments or long-term illnesses require a lot of care and support but sometimes they may not have the means to afford it. With PIP, someone in such a situation receives the necessary support to improve their quality of life. Personal Independent Payment is for persons between 16 and 64 years of age, and it applies to England, Wales and Scotland. The Personal Independent Payment contact number makes it easy to find out relevant information when looking to make a claim. Here are the fundamentals of PIP.

How does it Work?

PIP rates vary depending on the impact of a particular condition rather than the condition itself. There is an assessment conducted to evaluate how much a particular applicant is entitled to. Reassessments ensure that individuals receive payments that match changes in their circumstances. There are two PIP components; daily living and the mobility component. An individual must find out which of the two they qualify to register. PIP replaced the Disability Living Allowance but children younger than 16 and adults older than 64 can continue getting it DLA. However, someone who is still on DLA should wait until the Department of Works and Pensions informs them that it is ending and send an invitation to apply for PIP.

What Do You get?

For someone who is registering for PIP for the first time, it helps to know what to expect and when to expect it. For the daily living component, the standard weekly rate is £55.10 and the enhanced weekly rate is £82.30. The mobility component gives £21.80 weekly standard and £57.45 for the enhanced rates. Depending on the condition, you can get payments for both components. Payment comes every four weeks and it is made into a bank account. There is also another kind of support such as vehicle tax exemptions, carer allowance, housing or transport. Find out the payment that you qualify for.
