Letter to send evidence after your PIP claim form
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.
Find out more about changes to PIP on mygov.scot.
If you do not already get PIP
You can apply for Adult Disability Payment on or after these dates:
- 21 March - if you live in Dundee City, Perth and Kinross or the Western Isles
- 20 June - if you live in Angus, North Lanarkshire or South Lanarkshire
- 25 July - if you live in Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, East Ayrshire, Fife, Moray, North Ayrshire or South Ayrshire

Use this template letter if you need to send the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) more supporting evidence after you've sent your PIP claim form.
When you've completed the letter, print it out and send it by post to the address you sent your PIP claim form to. If you can't find the letter with the address on, call the PIP claims helpline to find out the address.
