In the United Kingdom, the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit designed to help individuals with long-term disabilities or health conditions to manage the extra costs that come with daily living. However, if an individual’s PIP claim is rejected or they receive a lower amount than expected, they have the right to appeal the decision.
