  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place, but I have done a search and couldn't find any threads about the UK benefit PIP. Has anyone else applied for this or received any awards? I am currently going through mandatory reconsideration as I scored 0 points (so frustrating) and it's been really difficult to find anyone else with IC or even just similar bladder troubles also going through the process.

    I'm not familiar with it, but it sounds like our Social Security Disability benefits. I haven't seen any posts about it, but hope you'll hear from some.

      I think it is probably similar but it's one of the only ones in the UK that doesn't take income into account, maybe that's why it's so hard to qualify. I'm surprised that there aren't any other threads about it but maybe someone will pop up!
