From 11th April 2011

Some Registered Blind People will be able to claim the Higher rate Mobility componenet of Disability Living Allowance.

However you will have to claim it !!!

There is no automatic increase as you have to meet certain criteria.

However now

DLA is to be replaced by PIPS

PIPS means Personal Independence Plan

Many Vision Impaired people will no longer qualify for the benefit.

The RNIB is currently running a campaign

against this unfair change.
