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 PIP. 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.
