Our PIP Toolkit identifies the PIP “descriptors” that are most relevant to many blind and partially sighted people. The descriptors are the legal tests you must satisfy to score the points you need to get PIP.
Once you have read the notes and Top Tips for each descriptor and thought about how they apply to you, you should be in a good position to complete your PIP2 form.
If the specific questions on the claim form do not address the difficulties you have then you should include this information in the box called "Extra information". You can also use the “Extra Information“ box to give more information about how you satisfy any of the descriptors.
Our PIP toolkit looks at the questions that are most relevant for many blind and partially sighted people. It does not cover all the questions on the claim form. You may have difficulties that we have not identified, and you should always answer the questions in a way that reflects the reality of your life. If you have other disabilities or health issues you will need to look at all the questions on the PIP 2 form.
You can save or print off any of the Toolkit pages to use when you need to complete your PIP 2 form. And if you send us your contact details using our Get in Touch page we will send you an email explaining what will happen once you have returned your completed claim form.
