The Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a new benefit which is to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for people of working age (16 - 65). It will be introduced from April 2013. All new claims from this time will be for PIP. People who are already receiving DLA will be moved onto the new benefit at some point in the next 2-3 years. We will be putting more information about PIP on our webpages during 2012.
