Petition Action

Review the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) application process.

Petition Details

Ensure that PIP applications are completed fairly by appropriately trained medical staff by government agencies. Ensure that "decision makers" awarding PIP are accountable. Reintroduce lifetime awards where appropriate. Ensure decisions are correct the first time they are made.

Additional Information

The PIP process is unfair, traumatic and inhumane, denying disabled people their rights and putting them at financial risk. It affects their mental health and puts them through months of distress. It overwhelms the court system when incorrect decisions need to be challenged. It wastes taxpayers' money when decisions are reviewed, and lines the pockets of private companies.
