Personal Independence Payment inquiry


The Work and Pensions Committee held an urgent one-off evidence session in the wake of Government plans to restrict the number of people who qualify for Personal Independence Payments (PIP). The move is designed to cut £3.7 billion from the benefits bill.

In this session the Committee discussed issues with the PIP application, assessment and appeals process. It also considered whether there are any specific groups of claimants that are particularly likely to appeal against DWP decisions, and what the impact is on claimants of delays in obtaining an accurate assessment.
