The Department and its assessment providers do not pay travel costs in advance and we have no plans to change the current policy which is consistent with other areas of Government such as the NHS Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme.</p><p> </p><p>All claimants who are required to attend an assessment are advised in their appointment letter to contact the relevant provider if they have any difficulty in attending the assessment. Where such situations arise, the Department expects the assessment providers to explore all possible options to ensure that an assessment can be conducted. For example, this may include changing the location of an assessment or undertaking a home visit where a person’s health condition indicates that either they cannot travel to an assessment, or where travel would require high levels of support or cause significant distress.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government response to the second independent review of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment, published on 18 December 2017, agreed with the recommendation that claimants should be given a clear explanation of their responsibilities and what information they should provide with their claim. It further set out that we will develop video content for PIP claimants, outlining the claim process and setting out the responsibilities of the claimant to provide supporting information with their claim. A series of four short videos are currently in development which will explain the PIP customer journey. The videos focus on the key stages of pre-claim, making a claim, providing supporting information and the PIP decision, and we aim to have them available to claimants in early 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We consulted widely and extensively on the assessment criteria for the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) prior to its introduction in April 2013. Furthermore, we carried out an additional consultation between 24 June 2013 and 5 August 2013 on the “Moving around” activity for the mobility component. PIP has been designed to reflect a modern understanding of disability and treat all conditions fairly. We have no plans to review the assessment criteria.</p> more like this
