The change from DLA to PIP

Many changes are being made to welfare benefits over the next few years which are affecting family carers.

Our Guide for family carers: The change from DLA to PIP has detailed information about how the introduction of Personal Indpendence Payment to replace Disability Living Allowance might affect you.

You can download the guide from the bottom of this page.

Changes to benefits

Whilst the information in the guide is correct at time of writing (May 2015), benefits may change. We'll update the guide as the Government announces further changes.

You will see which version of the guide you have by the date printed at the bottom of each page - the current version is Edition 8, dated May 2015.

If you are unsure whether you have the most recent edition, you can check by calling us on 0800 801 0448.
