TOPIC: PIP2 'How you disability effects you' - Preemptive

PIP2 'How you disability effects you' - Preemptive 11 months 2 weeks ago #170055

Hi all,

I'm asking a preemptive question.

As yet I use no aids in moving around (other than having to rest when I'm moving around for more the 150-200 meters), but I usually hold my wife's hand to stabilise me or lean on a wall etc. So, does using another person count as using an aid? Because if it does, I don't do much without using an aid.

I'm literally dreading starting this journey of ESA and PIP.

Being unemployed because of medical grounds at 30 is very un-fun.

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?


A person cannot be an aid but they can provide assistance.

I would recommend you have a look at our PIP Claim guide, in addition to the section that deals with Mobility also have a look at entries for "reliably" and on the "majority of days".
