Goodbye DLA, Hello PIP

The Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will replace Disability Living Allowance from 2013 and while there are similarities, there are also significant differences. This course will provide the most up-to-date information available on PIP and how it will work in practice. The course will:

  • Introduce the main elements of PIP
  • Show how these elements will apply to different service users
  • Go through worked examples
  • Explain the transfer process from people currently getting DLA

Who Should Attend:

All workers directly providing support to people with disabilities, benefit advisors and those responsible for income maximisation or take-up, staff involved in charging assessments or those providing support to carers
