PIP is a freeing benefit for disabled people in the UK, who can claim payments on top of their income. Much like many other benefits, PIP provides a top-up rather than a full replacement salary. Those who want to claim it must first meet a selection of criteria, however.
How many hours can you work to claim PIP?
Personal Independence Payment, much like Disability Living Allowance (DLA), is not a means-tested benefit.
As such, people can claim it whether they work or not, regardless of the amount they earn.
PIP also doesn’t change based on the number of hours worked.

Gov.uk states people receive an assessment before they can start claiming PIP.
Claimants receive assessments on the help they need with predetermined activities.
However, they also list a selection of potential difficulties which may entitle people to help from PIP.
The selection includes both physical and mental problems people may experience with everyday activities, such as planning a journey and following a route, moving around or eating and drinking.
