Introduction to benefits for disabled people


This one-day course gives you an introduction to personal independence payment (PIP) and to attendance allowance (AA), both vitally important benefits for many people with disabilities. The course also looks at disability living allowance (DLA) for adults. This introductory course is aimed at advisers with little or no experience of these benefits. It will give you an understanding of the main rules and help you deal with common problems.

The course covers:

  • Who is entitled to AA, PIP and DLA
  • How to claim
  • Transfer from DLA to PIP

This course complements Introduction to benefits for ill health. You can book them together as a two-day course.
