Petition Review the PIP assessment process to make it fairer for people with epilepsy
People with epilepsy are disproportionately discriminated against during the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment process.
Of those who previously received DLA, 54% were denied PIP, this is the second highest rejection rate out of all health conditions and double the national average. Additionally, 65% of new claims for PIP were denied the benefit. However, of the third that appealed the decision 78% were granted PIP. This is evidence that a review must be undertaken into how people with epilepsy are assessed for PIP to make the system fairer.
