Data on Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claims receiving an ongoing award on the highest level of payment (Enhanced awards for both Mobility and Daily Living) can be found on Stat-Xplore. In particular, the requested data can be found by applying the following filters to the ‘PIP Clearances’ dataset:

  • Clearance Type Detail: “Awarded”
  • Award Type: “Ongoing Award”
  • Daily Living Award Level: “Daily Living – Enhanced”
  • Mobility Award Status: “Mobility Award – Enhanced”

You may also wish to filter for “DWP policy ownership” under Geography due to the devolution of some disability benefits to Scotland.

You can log in or access Stat-Xplore as a guest user and, if needed, you can access guidance on how to extract the information required.
