Will I be assessed if I make a claim for PIP?

After you have submitted part two of your claim form, including any additional supporting evidence, it will be sent to an independent assessment provider. They will decide if you need to attend a face-to-face consultation.

If you are asked to do so, it is very important that you attend the consultation. If you do not do this and do not have a good reason (sometimes called a good cause) then this could mean that the DWP or NI Direct reject your claim for PIP.

You will be assessed by a health professional working for a private company that carries out PIP assessments for the DWP or NI Direct. The company is known as an assessment provider.

For further information see RNIB's webpage on PIP.
