star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p /> <p>Eligibility for the two main working age disability benefits – Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) – is assessed through two separate assessments. However, common to both is that they look at disabled people as individuals, and do not label them by their health condition, impairment or disability.</p><p>The PIP assessment considers the impact of an individual’s condition on their ability to carry out some key everyday activities. Similarly ESA looks to determine not what condition an individual has but rather how that condition impacts on the individual’s functional capacity to work.</p><p>Both assessments include descriptors which take account of physical, sensory, mental, intellectual and cognitive impairments. Claimants for either benefit – whether with a mental health condition, physical condition or both – will not be refused benefit simply because they do not require an aide, advocate or appointee.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>Carer’s Allowance was introduced to provide a measure of financial support for carers who have forgone the opportunity of full-time employment in order to care for a severely disabled person. Carer's Allowance is not a payment for the services of caring, therefore it is payable for the care of only one severely disabled person, even if the carer is looking after two or more people and there are no plans to change this policy.</p> more like this
