    Hi Lizan,

    As you are 60, you may be eligible for PIP. To start your claim you need to call the DWP on 0800 917 2222. They will ask you for basic information and then send a claim form.

    If you're not sure which benefit - then we have a benefit calculator here that you can use to check.
