Two thirds turned down for new disability benefit

While over 99% of claims made for people with terminal illnesses were successful, figures reveal only 37% of standard PIP claims were granted a cash contribution towards the extra costs associated with a long-term health condition or disability.

Whist I can understand that, as most, if not all, of these are currently new claims (as opposed to renewal claims, where, unless there is a change in condition / disability, the percentage should remain at ~100%), there will be a certain amount that do not qualify. Nevertheless, refusals on almost 2/3rds does seem impossible, improbable and VERY worrying.
