PIP: Five conditions which may provide up to...

A PIP claimant’s main disabling condition is recorded during their assessment in over 99 percent of cases.

Of those claims that have had an assessment under normal DWP rules since July, 81 per cent of new claims and 88 percent of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) reassessment claims are recorded as having one of the five most common disabling conditions.

They are:

– Psychiatric disorders – 1,012,763 claimants. This includes mixed anxiety, stress, depressive and mood disorders, OCD and cognitive disorders
– Musculoskeletal disease (general) – 572,996 claimants. This includes muscle or joint pain and arthritic conditions
– Musculoskeletal disease (regional) – 336,458 claimants. This includes neck, back, shoulders, elbow, wrists, hands, hip, knee and ankle pain
– Neurological disease – 369,246 claimants. This includes muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, headache, multiple sclerosis, neuropathy and other movement disorders
– Respiratory disease – 126,833 claimants. This includes asthma, diseases of the upper respiratory tract, pulmonary fibrosis and cystic fibrosis

PIP isn’t means-tested and is not affected by how much savings or income someone has. People don’t need to have worked or paid National Insurance contributions to qualify either.


BRITONS could be missing out on up to £608 a month because they don’t know if they could qualify for Personal Independence Payment . However, there are five conditions that could provide people with support.
