PIP claim: Thousands of Britons missing out on £7296 a year | Personal Finance | Finance


In total 19 health conditions qualify for PIP with more than three quarters of claims from people who suffer from psychiatric disorders, musculoskeletal disease, neurological disease or respiratory disease.

Britons with Long Covid could also be eligible for PIP as the illness affects people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks.

The DWP is dealing with just one Long Covid claim per day, despite the fact that 1.2 million people have Long Covid in the UK according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Nearly a quarter of a million (233,000) people say their ability to undertake daily activities has been limited as a result of the illness.
