Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Assessment - Move around

A straight forward guide to the PIP test, what the activities are and what you can score points for

Move around

Moving around is a mobility activity. Add the points you score for this activity with the points you score for the other mobility activity to find out if you may be entitled to the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

When you are looking at how many points you score for moving around, think about what help you need most of the time to do it:

  • Safely
  • Well enough
  • Often enough
  • Fast enough

You score the points for the sentence that is true for most or over half of the time. If more than one sentence is true, you normally only get points for the sentence that is true for the most time. You can only score one set of points for moving around, do not add them together.
