TOPIC: Disability Aids.

Disability Aids. 2 weeks 14 hours ago #174532

Hi,

I am being assessed for disability aids for my home by the local council, will this affect my PIP, I am worried they may well decide I can cope better, therefore do not need my PIP?

No it should not, DLA takes a negative view of aids but requiring aids under PIP usually scores extra points.
