How to Claim PIP

To start your PIP claim, you call the PIP claims number 0800 917 2222. You will need to provide your basic information and contact details for your GP or any other health professionals who are supporting you. This call takes around 20 minutes. 

You will then be sent a paper PIP2 claim form. You have 4 weeks to return your form, but you can call to request an extension if you run out of time.

It's good to get advice at this stage. Contact us to speak to one of our benefits advisors about what to include in your form.
