Consultation as government seek to limit disabled people’s eligibility for Personal Independence Payment

The government are conducting a consultation and invite views from all interested parties, especially disabled people and disability organisations. The review led the government to conclude that PIP doesn’t currently fulfil the original policy intent, which was to cut costs and “target” the benefit to “those with the greatest need.” That basically meant a narrowing of eligibility criteria for people formerly claiming Disability Living Allowance, increasing the number of reassessements required, and limiting the number of successful claims.
