DWP Publishes New PIP Myth Buster

October 29, 2013

With thanks to Disability Rights UK.

Following the announcement that PIP will only start to be rolled out for existing DLA claimants in limited areas, the myth buster is intended to correct any ‘misconceptions’ about the Personal Independence Payment.

You can download the myth buster from Gov.UK though you may also wish to download our own free guide to claiming PIP.

    That in order to work as a disabled person and claim disabled working tax credits, you have to be working at least 16 hours per week, meaning if you cant do this amount of hours you are ‘worthless’ on the job market. I was told if i cant do this amount of hours I should claim for ‘complete incapacitation’ – which i am not. The bone cruncher, however, is not this. It is the fact that in order to get Working Tax Credits you HAVE TO BE IN RECEIPT OF PIP – and in order to be in receipt of PIP you have to be ‘unable to work’ ??*%*?? Absolute contradiction in terms. Naturally. It is a scam to have people believe they have ‘options’ when indeed THEY DO NOT. Careful of this trap. First TELL THEM YOU ARE COMPLETELY INCAPACITATED. Get the PIP and ONLY THEN apply for a job that offers the hours you can manage.

      You do not have to be unable to work to recieve/claim for PIP. Dunno where you are getting this from G. PIP/DLA are NOT out of work benefits many people who recieve DLA/PIP are in work.
