Personal Independence Payments (PIP) Reviews for 1.6 million people

Every person receiving Personal Independence Payments (PIP) will have their claim reviewed, the Department for Work and Pensions has said.

A total of 1.6 million of the main disability benefit claims will be reviewed, with around 220,000 people expected to receive a higher award.

It comes after the DWP decided not to challenge a court ruling that said changes to PIP were discriminatory against mental health conditions.

The review could cost £3.7bn by 2023.
