DWP Aims To Slash Number Of PIP Awards by 35% - People Who Rely On Aids Main Target - Vouchers May Replace Cash

In this edition we reveal that the DWP is planning to make it much harder for claimants who need aids and adaptations to get an award of PIP. As many as 35% of claimants who currently get an award of the daily living component could miss out in the future.

The move by the DWP is partly due to the fact that claimants are winning a shocking 6 out of 10 PIP appeals, the latest figures show.

Also in this edition, we have news that ESA reassessments have begun again after a break of almost two years.
