Government to review all PIP benefit claims after accepting court ruling

It is reported in the Guardian that, “The government is to review about 1.6m disability benefit claims made over the past four years as part of major U-turn that will see an estimated 220,000 claimants eventually receive backdated higher awards.”

Read the full story in the Guardian article of 30th January.

NB As far as we know at present, this will not mean that claimants will need to make any new claims or undergo any new PIP assessments.
