Almost Half DLA-PIP Transfer Claimants Get Lower Or No Award

December 11, 2018

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

47% of disability living allowance (DLA) to personal independence payment (PIP) claimants either get a lower award or no award at all, according to figures released by the DWP today.

The figures for reassessment claimants show that in total:

  • 39% had their benefit increased
  • 14% had their benefit left unchanged
  • 22% had their benefit decreased
  • 21% got no award at all after assessment
  • 4% were disallowed before the assessment
  • 1% withdrew their claim

Results varied according to the claimant’s condition.

For example, 40% of claimants with psychoneurosis had their award stopped altogether, compared with 37% of claimants with psychosis, 28% with learning difficulties, 16% with arthritis and 15% with back pain.

One bit of bright news in the figures is that 28% of claimants were awarded PIP at the highest rate for both components, compared to 16% under DLA.

    It seems that the miracle that is pip continues. With so many sick and disabled people being cured and their illnesses reduced the Dwp should get the Nobel prize for medicine.

    Maybe if the assessors stopped lying and submitting false reports and these assessments stopped being determined by luck but were instead judged on medical evidence and need these figures would not be so bad.The entire system is unfit for purpose and failing claimants and taxpayers alike as it costs more than the system it replaced.

    “lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

    That said.. even the DWPs OWN stats –

    State that after YEARS of DWP Fraud, Abuse, Hate Crime, Torture and Murder
    their “net government loss” due to “Fraud and error”
    is STILL at “1.6% of benefit expenditure”.

    Just how insanely incompetent are those criminal filth?
    Or are they just making stuff up?
