PIP Assessment,Thresholds & Consultation - Please Take Part

Postby MCT » Wed Jan 18, 2012 9:47 pm

The DWP are carrying out a Consultation on the Assessment &Thresholds of PIP which is to replace DLA.

I think it is important that as many people as possible complete the Consultation questions, after all if you are on DLA now you'll be assessed for PIP and the way you are assessed could be influenced by your comments.

5.1 We have now published full details of the proposed assessment criteria for
Personal Independence Payment, including the weightings and entitlement
thresholds, and have shown the likely impact on the Disability Living Allowance
caseload. We would like to take this opportunity to seek further views from
disabled people and their organisations, to ensure that we get the assessment
criteria right. We are therefore launching a formal consultation which will run for
15 weeks, from 16 January 2012 to 30 April 2012.

5.2 For the consultation, this document should be considered alongside the second
draft assessment regulations and the explanatory note for the second draft of
the assessment criteria, both published on 14 November 2011.1 Copies of all
three documents can be found at http://www.dwp.gov.uk/pip:

http://www.dwp.gov.uk/docs/pip-second-d ... ations.pdf
http://www.dwp.gov.uk/policy/disability ... -criteria/

5.3 The draft regulations will need to be updated to reflect the published entitlement
thresholds and, subject to the passage of the Welfare Reform Bill, the proposed
changes to the required period condition. These changes will be made in a later
iteration of the regulations.

Please take the time to make your feelings known.

I know how I feel about it! :swear1:

Thanks for highlighting this, will definitely sit down with a brew and let them know my thoughts. I did that survey for the Papworth Trust, apparently they're sending comments directly to Maria Miller so I let her know exactly how disabled people are being failed. It was therapeutic in a way :-P
