20m PIP Consultation: Last Chance to Respond
This post is just a brief reminder that the DWP's consultation into the 20m limit for PIP Higher Rate Mobility closes on Monday 5th August. Anyone intending to respond who has not yet done so needs to reply before the end of business on Monday.
Details on the PIP consultation and on the problems disabled people face from the 20m limit can be found in our articles 'PIP: A 20 Metre Primer', 'PIP 20m Consultation: It's All About Cost' and 'Pip Consultation Update'.
As a reminder, DWP predicts 427,000 disabled people will lose their entitlement for Higher Rate Mobility as a result of the transition from DLA to PIP if the 20m limit is implemented.
