Personal Independence Payment (PIP) contact numbers

To make a claim for Personal Independence Payment (PIP), you will need to call the PIP claim line number and have some information available immediately.

You will be asked for information like:

  • contact details and date of birth
  • National Insurance number
  • bank or building society details
  • doctor’s or health worker’s name 
  • details of any time you’ve spent abroad, or in a care home or hospital

 Someone else can call on your behalf, but you’ll need to be with them when they call. You can also write asking for a form to send the above information by post (this can delay the decision on your claim).
