PIP: The Disability Tests
To claim Personal Independence Payment the claimant must provide details of how their illness / disability affects their daily lives - they will do this by completing a questionnaire, providing medical evidence and attending a medical.

To be awarded Personal Independence Payment the claimant must score enough points under either the Daily Living and/or Mobility disability test/s.
