Because of a DWP rule change, PIP claimants may be eligible for a £15,000 payday.

Thanks to a crucial rule change from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), certain benefits claimants could be eligible for a £15,000 payout.

Those who receive Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will be affected by the DWP’s changes.

According to a recent DWP investigation into the rule change, some PIP claimants are eligible for up to £15,000 in back payments.

The DWP has announced plans to change the process by which people apply for PIP as a result of the pandemic and social distancing measures.

The DWP’s financial support for PIP claimants during specific periods of time was affected as a result of this decision.

Finally, in April 2016, the Department for Work and Pensions changed the definition of social support, resulting in a significant change in benefit payments for claimants.

The DWP normally evaluates a PIP claimant’s ability to interact with other people face-to-face in order to determine whether their claim is valid.

PIP claimants, people who applied for PIP in the past but did not receive it, and people transitioning from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to another benefit payment were all affected by the DWP rule change.

According to the department, if a PIP claimant needs “prompting” or reminding in social situations from a trained individual, the Government body will now consider whether this falls under social support.

“The change also clarifies that social support is an ongoing need to help people engage with other people,” the DWP said.

It doesn’t have to happen right before or during the activity.”

Following this noticeable shift in strategy, the DWP is looking for current and former claimants who were impacted by the change in April 2016.

“This includes revisiting some claims we decided on or after April 6, 2016, where PIP was awarded due to a need for ‘prompting’ to engage with other people face to face,” the government body said.

“We’ll now see if they require’social support.'”

This includes some claims for which PIP was denied.

“If we decide that you need more PIP, your award will usually be retroactive to April 6, 2016.”

“If you filed for PIP after April 6, 2016, it will usually be backdated to when you first received PIP.”

PIP is the acronym for Personal Information Protection.
