If you know someone who is applying for Personal Independence Payments or Employment and Support Allowance, there is an online resource that can help them prepare.
C-App is an innovative digital service to help people going through the process of applying for disability related benefits. The site gives users all the basic information they need to know about PIP and ESA.
There are separate websites for ESA and PIP, and they will help you learn more so you:
- Understand what the benefits are and how to apply
- Understand the forms and the assessment processes
- Know how to answer the questions in your assessment
- Know more about your rights.
You can also practice, at your own pace, the sort of questions you’ll be asked. The aim is to help you be more confident about the forms and be ready for your assessment. You’ll have a clearer idea of what you need to mention in your assessment. This will also give you a clearer understanding of whether you’ll qualify for benefit, and at what level, when you do the assessment for real.
The sites were developed by Neontribe for seAp, an independent charity that provides free and confidential advocacy services in the South of England.
