PAY PIP NOW CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED BY MACMILLAN.
MacMillan has now launched its campaign on PIP waiting times and they are asking Benefits and Work readers to help out by signing their petition and highlighting it on social media.
MacMillan says that:
“The current average waiting time for PIP for people making a new claim in England and Wales is 18 weeks. It’s unacceptable that people living with cancer are facing such a long wait to receive the financial support they need, and are entitled to.
“We’re calling for the UK Government to reduce PIP waiting times to 12 weeks so that people with cancer get this support when they need it the most.”
You can please sign this petition and find out how to promote the campaign on social media.
