Same Difference

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

The DWP document ‘Equality Analysis PIP assessment criteria’ lists over 20 conditions most likely to lead to claimants being eligible for an award of PIP arrears. It gives an insight into who the DWP is likely to be looking at when considering arrears under the LEAP review.

The original estimate by the DWP that 160,000 claimants would be entitled to arrears was based on claimants who scored four points for mobility descriptor 1b – Needs prompting to be able to undertake any journey to avoid overwhelming psychological distress to the claimant – before the MH judgement and who also had one of the conditions listed below:

  • Agoraphobia
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Anxiety and depressive disorders (mixed)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Autism
  • Bipolar affective disorder (Hypomania / Mania)
  • Cognitive disorders
  • Dementia
  • Depressive disorder
  • Drug misuse
  • Learning disability
  • Mood disorders
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD
  • Panic disorder
