Getting to know... PIP.
Helping you to understand the new Personal Independence Payment.
In 2013 the government will introduce the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), a brand new disability benefit for disabled people aged 16-64.
Affecting millions of disabled adults across the UK, PIP will be replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) in the most radical change to disability benefits for many years.
'Getting to know... PIP' is the essential learning event for anyone wanting up-to-date, usable, practical information which they can then use to help their customers/clients/service-users.
