Changes to PIP in Scotland

A new benefit called Adult Disability Payment is replacing Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in Scotland in 2022.

If you already get PIP

You'll keep getting PIP until you move over to Adult Disability Payment. Social Security Scotland will contact you to tell you when that will happen.

Re: PIP claim supporting evidence for Sam Hoolin

National Insurance number: FR 45 76 67 A

I sent you my completed PIP2 form on 7 March 2022.

When I sent my PIP2 claim form, I didn't have all the relevant supporting evidence. I now include the following evidence to support my claim:

1. Letter from my occupational therapist

2. Mental health team care plan

Please send me a letter to confirm you have received this evidence and that it will be taken into account when deciding on my PIP claim.

Yours faithfully,

Sam Hoolin
