The DWP say a new administration exercise is underway over a change in how it defines ‘social support’
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claimants could be due back payments of around £8,000 after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) updated its assessment rules.
PIP is available to people to help with some of the extra costs if they have a long term physical or mental health condition or disability.
The DWP outlined changes it was making to the process which determined the level of financial support awarded to claimants during certain time periods last year – as the Daily Record reports.
