The website WWW.DWP.GSI.GOV.UK has a link to the recent consultation on PIP. (Link won’t work) The DWP proposal to the government is to amend the points on 2 of the 10 descriptors for daily living component from 2 points for using an aid to 1 point.
The changes affect dressing & toilet needs. That means that those using AIDS on 4 descriptors (preparing food, washing/bathing, dressing/undressing and managing toilet needsonly), who currently get 8 points and the standard rate for PIP will only get 6 points and therefore nothing. Managing therapy only gets 1 point for an aid.
This has to through parliament so let’s contact our MPs
