How much you may be awarded from April 2017 to 2018 (the rates for 2016 to 2017 are also given)

The weekly PIP payments:

Daily living component

Standard rate – If you have a limited ability to carry out daily living activities - £55.65 (2016 to 2017 - £55.10)

Enhanced rate – If you have a severely limited ability to carry out daily living activities - £83.10 (2016 to 2017 - £82.30)



Mobility component

Standard rate – If you have a limited mobility - £22.00 (2016 to 2017 - £21.80)

Enhanced rate - If you have a severely limited mobility - £58.00 (2016 to 2017 - £57.45)

If you have a terminal illness (that is if you are suffering from a progressive disease where death can be expected within 6 months) you will automatically receive the daily living component enhanced rate. You will also be able to apply for the mobility component and receive it immediately if you qualify.

If you are in a care home you will be entitled to the mobility component so long as you satisfy the qualifying conditions.

If you are paid PIP you are free to spend the money in the way that suits you best.
