This module teaches the disability criteria in Personal Independence Payment (PIP). It enables participants to identify what is relevant to the claim and how to help people make effective applications.
By the end of the module participants will:
• Be familiar with the points based system within PIP;
• Understand how the required period rules operate and how people with fluctuating conditions should approach the PIP assessment process;
• Understand how claims should be made and assessed where the claimant can complete an activity but cannot do it reliably;
• Understand how aids and appliances are considered in the PIP rules and how they can help claimants make successful applications.
