Assessment Process for PIP
Personal Independence Payments (PIP) are determined through an evaluation of individual needs. The assessment will focus on an individual's capacity to perform various essential activities for daily living. Information will be gathered from the individual, healthcare professionals, and other supporting experts. Additionally, most applicants will undergo a face-to-face consultation with a trained independent assessor as part of the claims process.
