    Hi caroline and welcome

    Have you tried putting your details into one of the on line benefits calculators /
    there is one on here somewhere ?

    You might also consider getting a full benefit check from CAB

    No-one mentioning that a PIP award can trigger entitlement to a national concessionary travel pass? In some areas, like Greater Manchester, this covers a lot more than free travel on just buses. It's a liberation for many people and can save an absolute fortune. 

    Also check out the Disabled Persons Railcard and the CEA care for cinema goers.

    Hi @caroline37, as CR says, the online benefits calculator is a good place to start.

    There is also a comprehensive list of extra money and help you may be eligible for alongside PIP on Citizens Advice website that is definitely worth a read. It includes benefit top-ups as well as info on council tax and concessionary travel. Hope this helps!
