PIPchecker will help you work out whether you (or someone you know) might be entitled to Personal Independence Payment?' (or PIP for short), and, if so, which components and which rates you might get.

Also, if you have been refused PIP, or awarded less than you hoped, it could help you structure your challenge to the DWP.

You can get started on PIPchecker straightaway, but if you haven't used it before you should read the PIPchecker guidance first. You should also read the warning box just below!

icon-warning1.jpgAlthough PIPchecker uses the same rules as the DWP this does doesn't mean they will always come to the same conclusion. For example, if you say you cannot walk more than 20 metres it will show that you are entitled to the enhanced rate of the mobility component. But the DWP may still refuse you if they think you can walk further than that.

So even if PIPchecker shows that you are entitled to a certain amount of benefit, this doesn't guarantee that you will get it.

The disability conditions

icon-key1.jpgMake sure you look at all the questions. Even if you find that you qualify for a particular component and rate before you've considered all of them, don't stop! Remember that the DWP won't necessarily accept all the points you raise, so you need to be aware of all the difficulties that your disabilities cause.
