Personal Independence Payment: aids and appliances descriptors – Department of Work and Pensions

This consultation seeks views on changing the way that aids and appliances are taken into account when determining entitlement to the daily living component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

If we do make changes, we need your views on 5 broad options for reforming how aids and appliances are taken into consideration. These include the practical, operational and financial suitability, feasibility and acceptability of each option.

You do not need to limit your response to these 5 options and we welcome additional suggestions. The options are not mutually exclusive and could be combined.
