Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a new benefit which replaced Daily Living Allowance (DLA) for people of working age from April 2013. It assesses your ability to carry out activities to do with daily living and/or mobility. New claims for PIP can be made from June 2013. If you are already receiving DLA and your award runs out before the end of February 2014 you will be written to and invited to claim PIP.  Brighton & Hove City Council has produced a Guide to PIP to help you understand the new benefit and how to make a claim.
