How do I claim PIP?

If you are in England, Scotland or Wales you can request a PIP claim form by contacting the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). You can choose to have the claim form sent to you by post or email:

  • 0800 917 2222
  • textphone 0800 917 7777

Phone lines are open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

If you are in Northern Ireland you can request a PIP claim by contacting the Department for Communities NI:

  • 0800 012 1573
  • textphone 0800 587 0937

Phone lines are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm.

Please note in Scotland it is planned for PIP to be replaced by a benefit called 'Adult Disability Payment' in 2022. This will be piloted from spring 2022, with a roll out from summer 2022. Eligibility rules for this are likely to be very similar as those for PIP. We will update this entry as more details become available.
