Motability Scheme - enhancements to PIP transitional support package

Please find below an announcement from Penny Mordaunt, the Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, relevant to the Motability Scheme and Personal Independence Payment (PIP) which may be of interest to you.
You will also find a comment from Lord Sterling, Chairman and Co-founder of Motability explaining this further.

The information relates to enhancements to the PIP transitional support package available to people who are unsuccessful in their reassessment from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to PIP.

Further details are also available, including a Q&A, on the Motability Scheme website here



Motability – The Big Event Manchester 6th May 2017.

I received a personal invitation from Motability to attend this show on behalf of FMAUK and I was pleased to accept so that I could check this event out and ask any pertinent questions for anyone with a Motability car and on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a changeover to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) on the way or anyone thinking of using the Motability Scheme.
We (my husband came with me) were met at the entrance by Alison and Amanda who took us for coffee over which we had a chat about my experience of being a Motability customer since 1990 and the recent changes to help people who have not been awarded enhanced mobility when they have transferred to PIP, already have a car under the Motability scheme and are therefore in danger of losing their car. Please see a previous post on the website about the improved help that is now available to someone who has a Motability car and chooses to go to appeal over the decision not to award enhanced mobility. Here is the information about how much money you get if you decide to keep your car while you go to appeal.
