What is PIP?

PIP is a benefit for people aged from 16 to 64 with long-term health conditions or impairments. Replacing the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), PIP helps people with a wide variety of disabilities cover the extra costs that they may face when trying to lead full, active and independent lives.

At Capita, we carry out PIP Assessments on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in Wales, the West Midlands and the East Midlands and the Department for Communities (DfC) in Northern Ireland. All our disability assessors are qualified healthcare professionals, who are specially trained in carrying out PIP Assessments and are approved by the DWP/DfC.

PIP Assessments are an opportunity for applicants to paint a picture of life with their condition and for assessors to gather all the information needed for the DWP/DfC to reach a decision on the level of payment a person needs to lead an independent life.

We’re on the lookout for compassionate and ambitious registered healthcare professionals looking to use their skills in a different way.
