The government has announced that it will look again at the mobility component of the Personal Independence Pay (PIP). This means that you have the opportunity to raise your concerns about the changes, including the introduction of the 20 metre qualifying distance for the enhanced rate of the benefit.
The MS Society believes that the proposed changes could cause large numbers of people to miss out on fundamental support and they are encouraging their members to respond. If you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org they will tell you how you can get involved in the campaign. You can also respond to the consultation as an individual from their website. The sooner you get in touch the better as the consultation ends on Monday 5 August.
