PIP information for those of you with children aged 16+
PIP is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA), so those receiving DLA will be asked whether they want to claim PIP at some point by 2017. DLA won’t be affected for children under 16 or people who were 65 or over on 8 April 2013. All new claims for people aged between 16 and 65 should be made for PIP.
Claiming these benefits can help you or the person you care for qualify for other benefits and or tax credits. If you are a carer who is disabled or ill you can continue to receive AA or DLA or make a new claim for PIP, even if you already get, or qualify for, Carer’s Allowance.
