In the past 12 months almost 125,000 people have sought help with this sickness and disability benefit from their local Citizens Advice, up 36% on the year before.
Gillian Guy, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice, said:
“PIP can be a lifeline for anyone living with a disability or long-term health condition such as arthritis, because it helps them with the additional costs they face like having someone come in to help with household chores or specialist equipment so they can get around.
“But every day hundreds of people are turning to Citizens Advice for help with the benefit. To get PIP most people have to go for medical assessment, but many feel that their medical doesn’t accurately reflect the day to day challenges they face with their disability or illness.”
