TOPIC: PIP points for sitting

PIP points for sitting 6 months 4 days ago #174448

Does anybody know if any points are awarded for not being able to sit for long periods.

I have a back and hip problem that stop me sitting still for any length of time this prohibits me from using public transport. I have points for mobility for which I'm grateful but not enough to stop me loosing my car which is a lifeline for me. The form only seems interested in walking distances but other factors can prevent you moving around.

Hi annken,

No, PIP has no descriptor relating to the ability to sit. Nor does it look directly at your capacity to use public transport.
