Blue Badge

Hi all, since being diagnosed in 2013 with RRMS i was wondering if its possible if i was entitled to a Blue Badge? i know i am not deemed as “ILL” but it would certainly help, i dont claim any benefit as i am working… Any help and adive most grateful, cheers.

If you qualify for the mobility part of PIP (upper or lower level) you qualify for a Blue Badge as of right. PIP is not a means tested benefit and you can apply if you are working. If you don’t get PIP, you can apply directly to your Local Authority - different LAs will have different criteria for giving them (eg how far you can walk etc) Look on your LAPTOP website for details.
