Ahead of the Department for Work and Pensions announcement regarding changes to PIP assessments after pension age, George McNamara, Director of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age, commented:

“This measure should never have been in place to start with. Removing the need for repeated reassessment will be a huge sigh of relief for thousands of disabled pensioners, which due to its mandatory nature caused unnecessary stress and anxiety. The government has rightly listened to such concerns and we hope further changes are made to improve the delivery of this vital support.”
