New PIP ‘benefit swap’ scheme could be introduced by DWP – ‘more personalised service’

2 mins read

PIP is also tax free. The amount a person receives will not be impacted by the income or savings they have put aside. Claimants can expect to receive their payment once every four weeks into a bank or building society account of their choice. 

However, while the payment can offer important support, there have been questions about whether it is being administered in the best possible way. These were raised in the DWP’s Health and Disability Green Paper, as the Government discussed whether payments could be exchanged for services. 

The green paper reads: “The ability to move around and make journeys is a key part of independent living. We currently provide mobility allowances through PIP and DLA. People can choose to spend these allowances however they wish.

“A popular way to spend mobility allowances is through the independent Motability scheme. The Motability scheme, which is operated by the independent Motability charity, helps people meet their mobility and travel needs.
