star this property answer text <p>The claiming process for Personal Independence Payment (PIP), including the arrangements to invite existing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claimants to claim PIP, was co-produced with the assistance of disabled people, carers and their representative support organisations to ensure it works effectively. Up to the end of October 2017 nearly 1,177,000 DLA to PIP claims had been registered, of which nearly 1,100,000 claims had been cleared. To ensure continuity of payment, DLA claimants continue to get paid while their PIP claim is being assessed.</p><p> </p><p>The Secretary of State and Ministers receive a wide range of representations about PIP from individuals, organisations and Parliamentarians. However, as PIP is a different benefit to DLA, with different assessment criteria, someone moving from DLA to PIP will not automatically be entitled to PIP, or guaranteed the same level of award. PIP is intended to focus support on those who need it most and 38 per cent of those previously in receipt of DLA are currently receiving the highest possible rate of benefit compared with only 15 per cent on DLA of working age at May 2013.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Child Maintenance Service’s definition of income includes almost all sources of gross income reported to HMRC by company directors or self-employed parents. The specially trained Financial Investigation Unit (FIU) are able to look into cases where there is concern about a parent’s income. The FIU has been expanded since it was set up in 2014; and between July and September 2017 it opened 1100 complex earner investigations. We recently launched a consultation on our new Child Maintenance Compliance and Arrears strategy which proposes further improvements to the treatment of the income of complex earners, such as high value assets owned by a parent being used to create a notional income.</p> more like this

Where a medical assessment is required, the Department has published comprehensive guidance for Health Professionals on how to complete the assessment report. This guidance was last updated in July 2017.</p><p> </p><p>As the majority of assessments are now undertaken on Personal Independence Payment, we work closely with the Assessment Providers to further improve the quality of assessments which includes ensuring their assessment reports are to the standard that the Department expects and are completed within an optimum timeframe. We have a programme of continuous improvement which includes Assessment Providers increasing clinical coaching, along with feedback and support available to each assessor. We are undertaking more observations of assessments and have introduced an independent audit of assessment reports to ensure that the advice provided to the Department’s Case Managers is of suitable quality, fully explained and justified. We will commit to progress the recommendations in Paul Gray’s second independent review around quality and consistency of Personal Independence Payment assessments.</p><p> </p><p>The Personal Independent Payment Assessment Guide provides comprehensive guidance for Health Professionals regarding all aspects of the assessment process including completion of assessment reports. This guide is updated regularly and was last updated December 2017.</p>
