The Government has published a new consultation on the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), which is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA). The consultation ends on 5 August 2013.

The following step-by-step instructions are designed to make it as straightforward as possible to respond; the instructions you use will depend on whether you’re a disabled person or you’re someone who’s supporting us (eg a health professional).

Step by step guidance for disabled people :

  • Write a response to the Government’s consultation, sending it to: pip.assessment@dwp.gsi.gov.uk Send a copy of your response to: pip20m@janeyoung.me.uk (see note below)
Step by step guide
  • Send a copy of your response to: pip20m@janeyoung.me.uk (see note below)

Note: We’re asking people to copy their responses to our dedicated email address so we can gain an understanding of how people are responding. We will not publish any information that could identify you personally; we’re interested in what you say, not who you are!
