    Do you have experience of claiming Personal Independence Payment in Northern Ireland?

    Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a disability benefit designed to help meet some of the extra costs of living with a disability. In Northern Ireland it is administered by the Department for Communities (DfC). In order to get PIP, you have to undergo an assessment, which is carried out in Northern Ireland by an assessment company on behalf of the DfC called Capita.

    There is currently a second independent review being commissioned by the DfC looking into how well PIP is administered in Northern Ireland. As part of the review, there is a call for evidence where the review team wants to hear directly from people who have claimed PIP.

    The review survey will ask you questions about:
    • Your experiences of the claim process for PIP
    • The types of evidence you provided as part of your claim
    • Any further information you think might be relevant for them to consider.
    It might be helpful to reflect on your experience of claiming PIP, what went well and what didn’t go well, and how you feel the system could be improved for the better.

    We would strongly encourage anyone with MND who has experience of claiming PIP in Northern Ireland to respond to the review.

    The deadline to submit your views is 16th October. This opportunity is only open to people living in Northern Ireland.

    A link to respond to the call for evidence online via a survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JYDDZPL

    Full details of the review and other ways of responding can be found here: https://www.communities-ni.gov.uk/co...rthern-ireland
