PIP

All about money

PIP

21 points for daily living on PIP is that still enough to claim it??
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) daily living component points scores

To get an award of the daily living component, you need to score:

8 points for the standard rate
12 points for the enhanced rate


For daily living, the points need to be scored from activities 1-10 above.

You can only score one set of points from each activity, if two or more apply from the same activity only the highest will count. So, for example, if:

d. Needs assistance to be able to wash either their hair or body below the waist. 2 points.
f. Needs assistance to be able to wash their body between the shoulders and waist. 4 points.

both apply you will receive only the 4 points for the 'Washing and bathing' activity. These can then be added to points for other activities, such as 'Dressing and undressing'

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Mobility Component Points Scores

To get an award of the mobility component you need to score:

8 points for the standard rate
12 points for the enhanced rate


For mobility, the points need to be scored from mobility activities 1-2 above.

As with daily living above, you only score the highest points that apply to you from each activity, but you can add points from activities 1 and 2 together to reach your final total.

Do not delay claiming.

However, do not be surprised if the claim is initially refused, this is quite normal because the first people who look at the forms are not very well trained. At least 50% of appeals are subsequently granted!
Do NOT give up if first rejected.
scores are 4 for preparing food
1 for managing treatments
2 for washing
2 for toileting
2 for dressing
2 for reading
4 for socialising
4 for budgeting
so that means he qualifies without mobility if he gets 21enhanced for daily living?
