Applying for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in Scotland

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit replacing the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for people aged 16 to 64 with a long-term illness or disability.

You can get it on top of Employment and Support Allowance or other benefits. Your income, savings, and employment status don't affect your eligibility.

Find out more about PIP or use the Government's PIP checker tool to see if you or someone you care for is eligible. The Scottish Citizens Advice Bureaux Service also provides advice on benefits. Get advice online or contact your local bureau.
