How much PIP will I get?

The amount of PIP that you get depends on how many points you score in the PIP test for daily-living and how many points you score in the PIP test for mobility. 

Daily living component

If you have daily living needs, you may qualify for the daily living component.  There are two rates:

  • Standard £55.65 per week
  • Enhanced £83.10 per week

You get the standard rate if you score between eight and 11 points for your daily living needs in the PIP test. You get the enhanced rate if you score 12 points or more. 

You automatically qualify for the enhanced rate of the daily living component if you are terminally ill

If someone cares for you and you receive the daily living component, they might qualify for Carer’s Allowance

Mobility component

If you have mobility needs, you may qualify for the mobility component. There are two rates:

  • Standard £22.00 per week
  • Enhanced £58.00 per week

You get the standard rate if you score between eight and 11 points for your mobility needs in the PIP test. You get the enhanced rate if you score 12 points or more. 

Find out if you qualify

You can get an idea of whether you’ll qualify for PIP, and which components and which rates apply to you, on the c-App website

Check out our Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Test guide to find out what you can score points for.

PIP and other benefits

Your PIP does not count as income for other benefits. 

You are exempt from the Benefit Cap if you or your partner is receiving Personal Independence Payment. The Benefit Cap limits the total amount in some benefits that working-age people can receive. You can read more in our Benefit Cap guide.

If someone cares for you and you receive the daily living component, they might qualify for Carer’s Allowance

If you get PIP, you could also get other help. Read our Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Other Help guide to find out about other help you can get when you get PIP, including Motability, travel concessions and extra amounts of other benefits.

Additional amount

If you get PIP, you also qualify for a Christmas Bonus which is £10 each year. The Christmas bonus is paid automatically and it does not affect any other benefits which you may be receiving.
