Dbs and pip

Had anyone with DBS been successful in getting PIP?

Hi @LittleMixWorry,
The criteria for PIP is based on any difficulties or help you need with a range of daily activities and your mobility. DBS usually helps to alleviate the motor (movement) symptoms of Parkinson’s, but a person could still experience other symptoms (or a fluctuation in their motor symptoms) that may mean they still would have difficulty or need help carrying out the PIP activities.

We have more information on PIP on our website here and you can download a copy of our PIP factsheet, which includes the descriptors and activities here

Our Helpline and Local Adviser Service would be able to have a further chat to you about eligibility criteria and support you through the application process if you would like to apply.

Warm regards,
