Consultation description

The Department for Work and Pensions has appointed Paul Gray CB to undertake the second independent review of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment. This is the second independent review as required by Section 89 of the Welfare Reform Act 2012.

The review includes all stages of the PIP process, with a particular focus on the use of further evidence in the claim process, data sharing and the claimant experience.

This call for evidence is one of several methods used to gather information during the review. Paul Gray will use evidence from this review to inform his report to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. We’ll lay the second review before Parliament by April 2017.

Who this call for evidence is aimed at

This call for evidence is intended for organisations and individuals who have information about how all aspects of the PIP process and assessment are operating.
